Lydiard Park is a beautiful historic estate on the western edge of Swindon, with the Palladian House, Church and Walled Garden,  set in 260 acres of parkland.

The children’s play area, cafe, events and education programmes make Lydiard Park a great destination for a family day out.

There’s a wealth of history waiting to be discovered as you tour round the State Rooms of Lydiard House, celebrated for its ornate plasterwork, original furnishings and family portraits dating back to Elizabethan times.

The Georgian ornamental fruit and flower Walled Garden has been faithfully restored with  stunning displays of flowers, fruit trees and topiary and in the park, there is more evidence of this once-great country estate, including the  castellated dam wall, Ice House and grand avenues.

Lydiard Park runs events all year round, including Open Air Theatre, Birds of Prey and Auto & Retro Festival.
