Old Town

Elevated on a hilltop, it has an individual character, with views across Wiltshire countryside and is a most sought after residential location. It is one of the oldest parts of Swindon, existing from well before the Domesday book with architecture spanning centuries and yet currently undergoing a renaissance with quality refurbishments of listed buildings and new wealth from Swindon's successful economy.A choice of wine bars, restaurants and street cafes are a short walk, healthcare is met by locally by Old Town Surgery or, within two and a half miles, the new Great Western Hospital. Lawn Woods/Park and Town Gardens (with aviary, concert bowl, rose garden and cafe) provide peace and a relaxing environment. Banks varied specialist shops and a comprehensive supermarket complete Old Towns' self-contained character.
