Swindon Designer Outlet
Holiday Travel Guide

Whether you prefer to simply browse or to take advantage of all the deals, this covered shopping center is a great place to spend the day. 

From stores to restaurants to activities, Swindon Designer Outlet has something to keep everyone in your group entertained. Visit this popular local destination to get great bargains on international brands and enjoy its historic location.

Situated within the Great Western Railway works, Swindon Designer Outlet occupies an important part of Swindon’s locomotive history. Today you’re more likely to see people zooming from shop to shop than trains being constructed. But be sure to stop to appreciate the Swindon-built train on display in the eating area.

Of course, the main activity for most visitors to Swindon Designer Outlet is shopping. Wander the rows of clothing racks, visit the shoe outlets, or shop for a new bag or jewelry. There are also specific stores that stock apparel and shoes just for the kids, in all of the latest patterns and designs.

If you get hungry, you will find plenty of restaurants to choose from. Dine on family-friendly Italian, enjoy a quick bite to eat at an American diner, or head to one of the cafés for a cup of coffee and a cookie or donut to keep you energized. There are also fast food chains in case you are looking for budget food to eat quickly before you get back to shopping.

Kids can try out the play area, with its computer games and interactive exhibits. Watch them jump around on the soft mats or challenge their friends to one of the activities. Send them off aboard the miniature steam train that runs around the complex for a unique experience.

Park in the metered parking lot near the Swindon Designer Outlet if you choose to come by car. You can also arrive by bus from the town center, or by train to Swindon Train Station from where it is a 15-minute walk to the outlet. Swindon Designer Outlet is open all through the week, but for the quietest shopping experience, visit on a weekday morning.
