Informal meet outside Steam in Swindon, 10:30-11:00 (museum opens at 11:00).

Buy our own tickets individually, £8.90; there are concessions for over-65s £7.15 (the group isn’t big enough for group concessions).

Leave whenever you like, to make your own way home (or visit the Designer Village).

Any last minute issues, please email, or ring 01249446447 (landline), 07771515273 (mobile)

There are, of course, now GWR train disruptions on 9th July, since easy access by train was one of the reasons for choosing this venue. Check trains/buses before departing!
