Book a stay at one of our Holiday Inn® Swindon hotels and in no time you’ll be exploring Wiltshire’s green and gently rolling countryside and Swindon’s quaint Old Town.
Our Swindon hotels make it easy to get out and explore this Victorian railway town or escape to nearby Wiltshire. Visit STEAM: Museum of the Great Western Railway, where you can see perfectly restored steam trains and learn how their history is entwined with that of modern Swindon. Take a short drive south of Swindon to Barbury Castle, an Iron Age hill fort commanding views of the verdant Cotswolds and the River Severn. Return to the center of Swindon to learn more about Barbury Castle and the archaeology of the region at the Swindon Museum. Both are minutes from our hotels in Swindon.
Located on a hill that rises to the south of the town center, Swindon's Old Town was built long before the railway came to town, when the city sprung up as a medieval market town. Old Town’s most striking landmark is towering Christ Church, built in 1851. Come to Old Town to shop and dine in its independent stores and cafes. Most of the town's restaurants and pubs are located in the Swindon town center, easily accessible from our Swindon hotels. Or take a short drive from the center of town to enjoy the charms of an English country pub in lovely Wiltshire.
Book into one of our Swindon hotels for round-the-clock celebrations. Swindon swings in May during the Swindon Literature Festival and in July for the Swindon Big Arts Day, where you can enjoy dance, theater, music, arts and crafts, poetry and more in venues all over the city.
