FUCK OFF! Srs Thread.
she'd LOVE that place!
I'm thinking of extending the catchment area to include Bath too.
have you got a car? Cotswold Water Park is fun: http://www.waterpark.org/
I like your thinking.
because it reminds me of the fags of the same name but with different spelling.
and it has a nice tea room.
Ooh, also: http://www.forestry.gov.uk/westonbirt
my ex went to Marlborough School and also comes from Swindon, too much scope for disaster.
It is pretty though.
just outside Swindon. My girlfriend's from Swindon - I'll tell her this thread exists!
Coate Water is a possibility - haven't been there for a while, might be grubby?
Town gardens is really lovely at the moment, feed the tame squirrels.
Wanborough is so close and has good pubs and pretty countryside.
A walk along the old railway path in Old Town.
or to the Link Centre, ice-skating! Or to Eros nightclub! This is my childhood.
her to Eros you'd have to invent a time machine first. Is that Hawaiian themed restaurant that sprung up in it's place still there?
I'm from Cirencester. So I tended to go to Cheltenham more, but I did spend a lot of my youth doing things in and around Swindon.
Is that a particularly classy establishment?
If you consider loads of drunk kids in tommy hilfiger shirts frigging girls on the dance floor then yes, eros was very very classy.
the whole of the Cotswolds?
then a trip to the domebusters, and finish it all off with a drink in old town.
the magic roundabout (unless she enjoyed the great white so much she wants to go back there straight away)
spiced it up with the tubing that they painted black!
that and the spooky gypsy women behind the glass that you have to walk past in the cave on the way to the stairs. that and going down the red slides backwards!
did you used to think that there was a great white shark that lived behind the glass near the wave machine?
I want to go to the oasis now!
that some workmen fell through the roof while trying to repair it.
Do you remember when there was an episode of casualty filmed there and the 'special' child injured himself on the pirate slide? My friend and I used to recreate that.
And the spray cannon that went off every half an hour
"red lockers, red lockers, leave the pool now"
We used to go once a week with my dad, my brother and I were allowed to take a friend each and usually my friend and I would spend the whole time in there dunking my brother and his friend underwater and performing wrestling moves on them. Fun times.
I was on my way to an interview in London earlier this year, when I caught my friend standing sheepishly at Bath Spa station trying toa void me. When I approached him he tried to pretend I wasn't there, until finally he said hello.
"Hey Andy, what's going on? You seem a little distant."
'Nothing' turned out to be a booty call in Swindon, where this girl he knew was stopping for half an hour on her way back up north. Shameful.
slightly home sick.
a 40minute drive, ditto bristol
