The Southern Flyer is a 2-mile path that connects
Swindon Town Centre to Wichelstowe.


About the route

The full route of the Southern Flyer runs between the Brunel Cycle Park near Wharf Green and follows the former canal south towards Kingshill.   The route then follows Wootton Bassett Road and Redposts Drive to end near the district centre in Middle Wichel.  This vibrant community is growing and you can enjoy the newly restored canal and a range of shopping and refreshment outlets here.

The route is on tarmacked paths and traffic-free, except for a short stretch of quiet road.  The Southern Flyer is suitable for high-speed commuter journeys and as well as for leisure purposes for all abilities.
