Beautiful country park. Free access to park, with very reasonable fee to visit Lydiard House and Walled Garden. Lovely place for a walk any time of year. Safe for kids with room for ball games and tree climbing. St Mary's church is a tiny and very beautiful church with some amazing statuary. Recommended for anyone.

Very conveniently located for visitors outside of swindon, as it's just off the M4 J16. Nice place to take a stroll around the large gardens, Lydiard House, etc.

Parking is free, as are the grounds. A great all-season attraction.

Lydiard Park really does have something for everyone. The free playground near the cafe is really well designed with seating both inside and outside for parents. There are also two jungle trails, which you have to pay a small fee for but they are brilliant for children to experience a bolder experience with safety in mind. Lydiard Mansion is worth... More
