Swindon and Cricklade Railway: Step back into a bygone era and take a ride on Wiltshire's only standard gauge steam train at the Swindon & Cricklade Railway. The railway has been entirely reconstructed by volunteers who, twenty years ago, took over an empty trackbed. Today it is a fully-functioning railway and has recently opened a second station at Hayes Knoll where visitors can view the steam and diesel locomotive collection. Visitors can also enjoy a wide range of facilities at the Heritage Railway Centre. The trains run on Saturday, Sunday and special events.

How to get here


Leave the A419 at the top of Blunsdon Hill, just north of Swindon, where there is a junction controlled by traffic lights. Take the westwards crossroad for Blunsdon and Purton and the Railway is about 2 miles on. There is just one small roundabout, followed by a road junction, shortly after leaving the A419. In both cases, you should bear right. Tadpole Lane itself is being affected by new junctions being built in conjunction with housing development, but keep straight on - our car park is immediately after a small river bridge.
