The Swindon Toy & Train Fair is located in the Winner’s Suite below the Arkell Stand at the County Ground, home of Swindon Town Football Club. This makes it one of the easiest fairs to find, as the ground is signposted clearly from almost every approach to the town. Simply look out for the brown-coloured “information” direction signs to County Ground, or the smaller football symbols that are visible on most of the major road signs at junctions and roundabouts.
Parking is also very straightforward. There’s plenty of free parking at the official car park beside the County Ground, but you may also park (for a maximum of 2 hours) at the Tesco Extra car park just ten minutes walk away. Don’t forget that Swindon’s popular Steam railway museum is only a short walk away, and the Designer Outlet is almost next door – making this a great day out for the whole family.
