Although now remembered for its railways, GWR built and ran buses as well as trains.

Swindon Station has been in operation for 174 years and over three million people pass through the station each year.

Much of the original Victorian Swindon Station was demolished in 1972, including some buildings designed by Isambard Kingdom Brunel. Today, The Signal Point office block, built in the early 1970s, towers over the station’s redeveloped forecourt. 

Just round the corner, commuters emerge onto Rodbourne Road.
