Swindon, at least they have an M&S.
We made it to Swindon to kit ourselves out for our hols. and to change our valuable pounds into Mickey Mouse money, a.k.a. Euros.
It's sad how, if you blindfolded someone and dropped them into any town in Britain, they would not be able to name the town.
The council offices have a certain amount of architectural credibility.
On a sultry day the local youngsters appreciated a water feature, but all in all it's a bit bland. Of course we only saw a little bit of the town, perhaps we missed the best bits. At least, contrary to expectations, we didn't get mugged. Sorry, is that town stereotyping?
Good feature, the parking is reasonable, four hours for two quid.
