Buses to Old Town

With 3 GBG pubs and several other real ale pubs, Old Town is a popular destination but a bit of an uphill trek. Fortunately Swindon Buses run a service from the station to the heart of Old Town. Catch the 22 (every half hour) and get off just past the Hop Inn. If you just miss one head down the street opposite and follow the Town Centre signs to get to Fleming Way. Catch the 11, 12 or 25 from just above the near side of the underpass.

Having made your way round the top of town enjoy a gentle stroll down the hill to the Beehive, Wyvern and Glue Pot on your way back to the station.

Alternatively, if you feel less energetic, there is an EveningRider ticket available from 18:00 for £2.60. Any other time of day you are better off with single tickets. Contactless payments are available but you must remember to tap off at the end of your journey or you will be charged for a DayRider anyway!
