Also, if you're visiting the Assembly Rooms - the ballroom is hosting a special exhibition from 14 July to 28 August re John Bates, fashion designer. Entry to this exhibition is included in the price of admission to the Museum of Costume.
The last bit of news is a bit of a pain.... First Great Western is doing engineering work that will close the main lines west of Swindon from Sat 26 August to Sun 3 Sept. So, do check the situation for any journeys you are planning ! Information available on website : www.nationalrail.co.uk
