Surrounded by some of England’s finest countryside as well as a number of famous attractions, Swindon is one of the South West’s best kept secrets. As the largest town in Wiltshire, Swindon is enriched with Victorian parks and gardens, multiple museums (including the award-winning Steam Museum), art galleries and much-loved shopping centres.

History of Swindon

Mentioned in the Domesday Book in 1086, Swindon began as a Saxon Village. For centuries after, Swindon was just a small and quiet market town however it was the introduction of the railway in 1840 which transformed the area from a small and sleepy market town into the largest town in Wiltshire.

The town’s St Mark’s Church was consecrated in 1845, the first shops opened in 1846 and from the mid 1840s houses were built on Bridge Street and Fleet Street. It was also within the 1840s that an iron rolling mill was built in the town. As more and more ironworkers moved into the area for work, new houses were built  what is now known as Cambria Place and Cambria Bridge. Over the next 40 years, many more roads, including Regent Street, Queen Street, Henry Street, Reading Street and Oxford Street, were built upon and by 1881 the population of Swindon exceeded 15,000. The town was however still in two settlements – the old town and the new town – divided by fields.

By 1900 the two towns, Old and New Swindon had fused together into one. The growth of the new town continued at an impressive rate in the years after, with an isolation hospital, an electricity generating station and a system of tramways built soon after.

After WWII, Swindon was designated an overspill town. As a result, the town expanded rapidly as around 14,000 people moved to the town from London during the 1950s. Swindon was still very much a one-industry town at this time; however, the end of an era came in 1986 when Swindon’s railway works closed. 

Today the town’s railway heritage lives on in the form of museums, while its industry is far more diverse than it was those many years ago. In the 21st century, the main employers within the town include insurance, banking and food distribution.

For pupils in key stage 3 and 4, Swindon Academy and The Ridgeway School & Sixth Form College have proven to educate students to a high level. For those looking into higher education, Oxford Brookes University has a campus in Swindon. The Joel Joffe Building, with its purpose-built facilities, opened in late 2016 and is the home of the university’s healthcare-related courses.

Swindon as a modern city has plenty of cycling routes for commuters that have a cycle to work scheme or simply enjoy getting on their bike with the nearby National Cycle Route 45. 

Swindon is close to the M4 motorway making it easy to reach the South West and Wales by car. It is also renowned with drivers for the “Magic Roundabout” where learner drivers fear to drive and even experienced drivers may also get a little lost! But with the Cotswolds and popular cities close by, it’s worth a wrong turn or two.

Swindon is often visited for its shops, where the high street is still going strong with local boutiques and larger retailers. The inner-city Old Town has many cafés, bars, and shops, including five retail parks.
