Traffic Information

Swindon is one of the most accessible towns in south-western England. Situated to the north of the M4 motorway it is 78 miles from both London and Cardiff and 35 miles from Reading in the east and Bristol in the West. Junction 15 (east) and Junction 16 (west) offer direct access to the city.

Swindon has more roundabouts than any other town in England. The largest is the Magic Roundabout, one of the biggest road junctions in the south of England. Make traversing the famous road junction simple by adding a SatNav to your car rental in Swindon package. Most of the city centre is pedestrianised but there are good parking facilities nearby including at the Brunel Centre and at the Whalebridge Centre in Islington Street.


Sixt Tip

Enjoy Swindon's Long and Varied History

Swindon is a popular shopping destination. Make use of extra space in a roomy 4x4 or minibus to pick up bargains at the Brunel Centre or at McArthur Glen Designer Outlet, Europe's largest indoor designer outlet space. Be sure to visit Swindon Tented Market, a unique permanent indoor market in a tented setting. Alternatively, drive to Avebury Manor and Gardens, one of the many stately homes in the area or take a detour to Swindon Art Gallery to see works by A.S. Lowry and Henry Moore.

Plan a trip to the Steam Railway Museum . Once part of Isambard Kingdom Brunel's Swindon Works, the museum in Kemble Drive is one of the town's major attractions. No stay in Swindon is complete without exploring some of its outdoor spaces like Roves Farm park or the craft village and butterfly world at Studley Grange in your rental vehicle.
