At night you have the choice between the "top of town (old town)" or "bottom of town" (New Town), both are an easy walk between each other na both have fantastic bars, restaurants and clubs.
As for getting about, this city was designed for walking from A to B, with many amenities within a short distance of your accommodation. But if the hangover has hit hard and those jelly legs are still a bit wobbly then there are plenty of taxi pick-up points across the city. For those hard to reach activities on the agenda, DesignaVenture offers a mini bus service (at extra cost) to get you there and back in one piece.
We are not saying that Swindon is going to as lively as Bournemouth however, it's a great place to visit let your hair down and have a laugh with the boys.
