So what is We Are Swindon’s Lifestyle?

In a recent survey by One Family Swindon ranked 7th in a list of 35 best cities to live, work and raise a family in the UK. This is no surprise to us, we’re proud of our lifestyle. We love our stunning parks and glorious wide-open spaces. The wonderful Wiltshire, Cotswolds and Oxfordshire countryside wraps their arms around us. Our good schools, affordable homes and terrific transport links makes it a very happy place to live.

It’s a great place to raise a family. Our town has good leisure facilities, museums and the best collection of 20th century British art outside of London’s Tate Modern. We love being part of many community groups and visiting the great places in and around Swindon.

The town also boasts a brilliant business community with businesses of all sizes. They range from small, independent shops to major employers like the Research Councils and Nationwide. We have it all. From our many cafes and restaurants to IT agencies to beauty salons and builders. We’ve got the lot. Our great location serves us well in this regard.

For all this and more, we’re proud to call Swindon home.

On this web page you can choose what parts of We Are Swindon’s lifestyles you’d like to explore.  We share photographs of all aspects, across all our We Are Swindon social media channels.
