My Husband is a regular at Swindon Karting and occasionally I take the kids along to watch Daddy, which we did last night as it is the school holidays. Although it is a bit cold we go prepared and wrap up warm. We can watch from the bar stools at the side of the arena or go upstairs which gives a particularly good view of the whole circuit. There is a little cafe, it isn't always open, but there are vending machines if you need a drink or nibbles. Our 5yr old cant wait to have a go when she is a bit older.

I would have rated this as excellent, but there is one downside, it is a big downside for me....the toilet facilities... they are really quite grim and taking a 3yr old to the loo, feeling like I would rather him do it outside is not good. Please, please improve the cleanliness as I feel this is the only thing that lets the place down.

Thank Jacqui L

Regular customer of Swindon karting arena, the track and whole place has improved so much since new ownership a few years back, I have been glad to play a small part in it, now to see how busy is gets day in and day out. The new track layout definitely is the best in the SW.

We booked through Karting Nation which was all very easy. We turned up, no booking!!! Argghhhhh! Thankfully the very nice lady there fitted us in without a worry. Phew I was very worried I would have 7 disappointed children who had travelled quite a distance to attend. A great time was had by all. Staff were great, friendly and extremely helpful. Everyone had a fab time, thanks. We'll be back for a parents versus kids race!!

Had a great 40 minutes whizzing around the go-cart track. I'm no Lewis Hamilton but that didn't stop me and the family having a great time!
