If you were going on a Leo Sayer where would you go? Has to be on a train. Suppose the most realistic options are Reading, Bath, Bristol or Cheltenham.

Later trains back from Reading than anything west of Swindon.

I think I'd rather not go on a Leo Sayer, but each to their own

For me, id Rather sit in the sun during the day than go out at night...

Oxford is a ball ache to get to (apart from the bus

The Oxford bus service is excellent, last one back is at 23.20, however the cognoscenti, prefer the chuffer, on the grounds that that the S6 rattles around a bit, making bladder control difficult after a long session.  The last train from Oxford to Didcot and down to Swindon is approx 00.07 out of Oxford.  As WB says much better than anything west.

I think Paul was being "literally" funny.

Cheltenham or Bath if coming back at a reasonable hour.

Yeah, the shit thing about an evening in Bath is the 10:40 train back. But if you are on a Leo you may be fine with that.

Bath. A full cab back (booked using a Swindon taxi firm) works out about a tenner each

Have you lot got no adventure? Brussels or Paris by GWR & Eurostar easily doable for a seven or eight hour stint, and back in the Queen's Tap to see the encore of the band.

Alternatively, Swindon's Old Town is a go-to destination atm. Some lovely venues have now really bedded in.

It's curious how although being in the same county Sarum is cut off from Swindon....  especially as there used to be a coach road, when Swindon was just the small town on the hill. That fell into disuse...

A left field, in more ways than one alternative might be Stroud... last train is about 10:30 but no arseing around, just a couple of stops and cheap.   Lots of intersting pubs within the environs, and as home to the Extinction Rebellion, chances of meeting some interesting people.

Before I opened the thread I wasn't sure what it'd be about.

Has he died?
Is he interested in buying the club?

We normally do bath, but can't report on any other locations.
