Come for a walk in Lawn Woods, Swindon with us.

These woods are tucked away a short walk from the busy Queens Drive road.  The 50-acre Lawn Woods  is often used as a pleasant walk way. Peolpe like to walk their dogs through this stunning woodland into the heart of Old Town. It is also very popular with fisherman due to its two huge lakes, hidden amongst the trees. A brief climb to the top and visitors can expect fantastic views of Swindon. You can see New College, the WHSmith head office building, and Greenbridge Retail Park. The view can stretch as far as Stratton St Margaret, just over four miles away.

It’s one of our favourite places in Swindon and the photographs show why.

Local people’s photography of our Lawn Woods.

“Shared a lovely experience with a friend on a social distanced walk. We sat on a bench looking out over Old Walcot and chatted for a hour or so taking in the view and environment. Lawns is a large park with different walks a few lakes and lots of different parts to explore and exit. It is an enjoyable place to spend time.”

“What a lovely place for a walk and such history relating to the country house which once stood there. I like the fact there was an information board telling you a bit about the house and former owners.”

“The Lawns is a beautiful, peaceful place right in the middle of old town. It has a huge variety of trees, two lakes with wildlife and good walking paths. It extends from Old Town to Old Walcot and Drove Road. Always busy now with walkers and dog walkers. Great views over Swindon from the highest point.”
