STEAM – A visit to the Swindon GWR Museum, a set on Flickr.

Another day out with Wickson’s Travel from Walsall Wood, Staffordshire, this time to Swindon, the home of STEAM – the Great Western Railway Museum (and, for the ladies, a retail park next door!).
An extremely interesting and well-laid out museum with lots to see and do, and children are well catered for too, with various models to have a go on.
Also worth a mention is the Cafe, good food, good value and friendly staff, as were the rest of the museum staff.
