Tatler apologises to Swindon

High society magazine Tatler apologises to the people of Swindon


When November’s edition of Tatler branded Swindon “a no-go zone for Tatler types” and suggested: “We wouldn’t want our readers to get sucked into its vortex and not find their way out. It’s safer simply to steer clear”, there was uproar from the town’s MPs Robert Buckland and Justin Tomlinson amongst others. Now, in an online feature, this favourite of Sloanes everywhere has backed down and listed “ten things to love about Swindon”.

Swindon is best known for its preposterous Magic Roundabout


Ranging from lauding Swindon’s Computing Museum to suggesting its “punchy local paper”, The Swindon Advertiser, has “a GSOH”, the article – whose author is not listed – has thus far attracted just 6 comments. One suggests readers “fill yer (Hunter) boots… More heritage than you can shake your (silver-topped) stick at”. Ouch.

    1. Well, if the Tatler had done some mildly academic research it would have found that there is a Swindon Film Society, a Swindon Recital Series, a Swindon Symphony Orchestra and a Swindon Chamber Orchestra. The key for google is the name ‘Swindon’.
