Try your hand at changing the signals, driving an engine and even walk under an 80 ton train at STEAM - Museum of the Great Western Railway.
Housed in a beautifully restored Grade II Listed building in the heart of the former Swindon railway works, this interactive museum will give you the opportunity to learn more about the history of steam trains and their influence on the town.
Learn about the creation of the Great Western Railway, the people who operated and travelled on it, and how, through the vision of Isambard Kingdom Brunel, it set the standard for rail travel.
Combine your visit with a trip to next door McArthurGlen Designer Outlet, also set in the former Great Western Railway Works, where you can treat yourself to some great bargains.
