Heritage Open Day: Swindon 

The chance to take a look inside two of Swindon's most interesting buildings

This year for the first time, the National Trust at Heelis will be working with staff at STEAM: the Museum of the Great Western Railway, to offer FREE guided tours of two highly different buildings.
 
The office spaces of Heelis, the National Trust’s award winning Central Office in Swindon, are not usually open for tours of the building on Saturdays, and the Railway Cottage is being opened by staff at STEAM especially for Heritage Open Days.
