Confusion as TripAdvisor decides to move Swindon to West Midlands

The website TripAdvisor has moved all of the town’s business listings to a small village also named Swindon, near Dudley in the West Midlands.


Every Swindon listing on the website has been relocated to Staffordshire’s village of Swindon and has caused a lot of confusion with regular users and local business owners.

Alix at The Pear Tree in Purton tweeted: “@TripAdvisor have moved the whole of #swindon to the West Midlands! Have tried to fix it but they won’t listen.”

We contacted TripAdvisor for comment, but no one was available.
