Music Shops in Swindon

Find the best places in Swindon to buy music equipment.

Here at Guitar Lessons Swindon, we are often asked by our guitar students which local music stores they should check out for all things guitar.

Well to help them along their way we have drawn together a list of what we consider to be Swindon's top guitar shops. So in no order...

Holmes Music

originally started life as a driving school way back in the 60s. John Holmes, the owner of the driving school resold a few guitars in the store window. In a strange turn of fate, this part-time hobby quickly became his full-time business as sales shot through the roof. The driving school was quickly shut down in favour of a full-time music store. Amazingly over 50 years later the shop is still going strong a boasts some fantastic guitar brands including Fender, Marshall, Squire, Line 6 and many more. Located at 21-23 Faringdon Road, Swindon, SN1 5AR the store is well known for its friendly and helpful staff. Catering for guitarists of all budgets and levels Holmes Music is certainly your first stop when looking for guitar equipment in Swindon.
