This large area of parkland is a glorious place to walk, with or without a dog. Hundreds of acres of woodland, formal gardens, a medieval church, well tended footpaths and excellent refreshments. All with free admission and parking. Today vast swathes of snowdrops covered the floors of the woodland glades and, as spring approaches, the tree tops are filled with... More

This is by far one of the most beautiful parks in Swindon, with lots of long walks through the countryside, perfect to connect with nature the calmness and scenic views of the park. A Lake located amidst the endless green lawn and a historic manor, reflecting in the water. Swans and ducks now have made their home around the lake... More

Lydiard is a great place to take the youngsters for a long walk. There's plenty of wildlife to see and grounds to explore as well as the house and the lake. In the summer months there have been several attractions and events at the park over the last few years. At the present time parking is free but this is... More

We went to lidiard fields last year and had a great time. The main grounds are a lovely spot for a picnic and if you can't be bothered with that don't worry, there is a barbecue hire on site. There is a small adventure playground for the kids, big and small and a lovely lake to feed the ducks, swans... More

Lydiard is a fantastic place for everyone to enjoy. A great place to relax, run around or participate in any of the events - we need more pay to attend events to sustain the park and keep it free!
