1. FOR Sheila McGuire it is Coate Water Country Park, that is the top spot for best walk in Swindon.

Located only three miles away from central Swindon the park offers lots of green space for families and individuals to chill out and take a breath of fresh air.

But most importantly, visitors can enjoy a walk around the 70-acre lake, which is both a leisure facility and a nature reserve.

It is notably known for its bird populations.

Various facilities are available including a well-established café, a play area, a golf field and many more.

2. FOR Lindsey Bull, a nice walk around Barbury Castle always brings her peace.

The Iron Age hill fort lies about five miles south of Swindon and the M4. Lindsey said she found the view from Liddington Hill to Barbury Castle beautiful and peaceful.

The 60-acre site is full of history from the Roman occupation to the World War II. It is where the West Saxons are believed to have defeated the Britons during the Battle of Beran Byrig.

And nature lovers will also be seduced by the great variety of butterflies that can be found on the hill.
