Transport: Seven Swindon Stories

Wednesday, 16 May | 11.00 am - Saturday, 1 September | 4.30 pm

| Free

Swindon has always been a town of making and moving. From canals and trams, through to trains, planes and cars, this is a town that’s always on the go.

This exhibition explores Swindon’s transport history through seven stories. It’s not an encyclopaedic history of our transport in the town, but a look at some of the innovations, successes and tragedies that have changed the face of Swindon, including:

The Golden Lion Bridge, and the Wilts and Berks Canal

The Swindon Tram Disaster of 1906

Pressed Steel, and car manufacturing in Swindon

The M4: The arrival of the motorway in 1970

It will also look at aeroplanes, submarines and the Old Town railway station!
