Trowbridge Information Centre had gained two new members of the team who thoroughly enjoyed their day out at the Steam Museum and the McArthurGlen Outlet Centre recently.

The first exciting experience for them was taking the train to Swindon with just a short walk to the Steam Museum which is very convenient.


Steam Museum

On arriving at the Steam Museum the first thing that caught Aidan and Isla’s eye was the souvenir shop which was nicely displayed and enticing.

Once we had our tickets we were provided with a couple of maps which was brilliant for the children as they could follow the markings on the map making sure that nothing was missed out.

The Steam Museum was very well laid out and it was really interesting to see how the trains had been made. Aidan and Isla’s favourite part of the museum was being able to go and see inside some of the carriages. There were lots of things to see and the museum is well worth a visit.


McArthurGlen Outlet Centre

Swindon’s Designer Outlet Centre is well-known for finding a great bargain. Shopping is never appealing to young children (unless it’s about toys), but at the customer service desk you are able to hire a car for children to sit whilst the parents push and steer making it fun for them. Aidan and Isla absolutely loved this and this made shopping great fun for them as they kept on racing each other . . . Aby constantly being told to put 100% into her running whilst in heels.

The shop that stood out for us whilst we were there was Hamley’s: their customer service was exceptional and helped find items for Aidan that were within his budget.

The Steam Museum and McArthurglen Outlet Centre are next to each other, making a great day out for all ages, and whatever the weather.
