Swindon bus station is probably the worst facility I visited on my travels. Ageing, cramped, grimy and full of pigeons. I'd arrived just after five, which meant that the travel information office was closed, and the commuters were lining up to head for home. I'm headed for Andover via Marlborough on standard Stagecoach double deck 16504 as pictured.
