About Swindon

Swindon is a large town with a population of over 200,000. The number of entertainment options are significant, making it a great place for foster families. There are famous theatres and museums to choose from, as well as sports and recreation centres. One particular museum that stands out is the STEAM railway museum that tells the complete history of the great western railway. It's right next to a designer outlet too for a bit of post museum retail therapy! Other museums and art attractions are situated close to each other in and around the city centre. You can check out Swindonweb.com - it has plenty of ideas for places to go and things to do!
