How to make an international call to Swindon

The first stage in calling a Swindon phone number from outside the UK is to remove the initial zero ‘0’ from their 01793 area code, leaving you with 1793. You should then replace this zero with the international calling code for the UK which is ‘+44’, giving you +44 1793. Finally you should dial the remaining six digits of the full phone number you wish to call. Therefore if you wanted to contact STEAM – the museum of the Great Western Railway from overseas you would dial +441793 466 637 instead of 01793 466 637.
