Say Hello to the New Look Total Guide to Swindon Website
After a long time in development, testing and implementation, we’re proud to finally talk about our brand-new website! Here’s where you’ll find out all about our new site and all the new features and improvements we’ve made to make your visit here more enjoyable.
We’ve been giving our site users the Total Guide to Swindon for five years this year and our website has served us well. However, we’re always looking to improve our service and push ourselves forward, so we decided it was time we gave the site a makeover.
If you want to jump to a particular section of this article, choose from the list below:
We’ve adopted a new look for our user interface. We’ve retained our classic grill and bars but have brought them in to 2017 with an updated, more contemporary look. We love it, we hope you do too! We’ve also ditched the text-heavy page content and made the site a lot more visual, letting the images do more of the talking.
We know that your time is precious, so we’ve juiced up our site to deliver a much quicker loading time, meaning less time waiting for content to load and more time discovering the fantastic events and offers happening on your doorstep.
There’s nothing more British than worrying about the weather. Now there’s an up-to-the-minute weather display that gives you the temperature, today’s highs and lows, as well as a forecast for the next few days. It’s a good thing our Sunny Day and Rainy Day Guides are always available!
Did you know that there are more locations in the ‘Total Guide to’ Family? We’ve got sites that cover Bath, Bristol, Reading and Manchester. Swapping between our sister sites couldn’t be simpler, with a simple drop-down menu located in the site header. Planning that trip away couldn’t be easier!
It’s now easier to see how much incredible content is located with each of our site sections. Whether it’s entertainment, lifestyle, sport or business, the latest events, offers and competitions will be simple. As well as links to all the unique guides that put the guide in Total Guide to Swindon.
There’s something going on everywhere you turn in Swindon. From live music, exciting nights out to things to do with the family. Our Events Calendar has long been the heartbeat of the site, which is why we were adamant that we wanted to make it work even better.
We’ve done away with the old, text based, multi-day view and have focused on showing you the events happening that day, letting you scroll all the way down to the end of the week. We’ve even highlighted the events that we think you’ll really like from our partners.
Looking for events on a particular day or at a specific venue? No problem! Use our Filter Options to find exactly what you’re after.
We love connecting local businesses with the people that live, work and visit Swindon. It’s why we get out of bed in the morning. That’s why we’ve added a few extra opportunities around the new site for local businesses to share their amazing work. If you’re looking to reach our site users and want to talk about how we can help you, email our Sales Team.
Let us know what you think!
We’re nothing without you: the people that visit our sites. That’s why we’d love to hear from you and what you think of the changes we’ve made. If there's anything that isn't working the way it should, let us know via email, or on Facebook and Twitter.
