A really lovely place. There is public access to the gardens when the house is closed, there is a lake and plenty of space for a picnic or playing games. The restaurant offers a variety of snacks and restrooms. They have an additional children play area and a neat ice house with the history of how they were used.

We enjoyed a walk around the park and our 8 yr old enjoyed a play on the playground. They have nice walking pathways that you can choose to walk along through the woods or down by the lake. They also have a stately home you can explore as well and a tree top obstacle course. Nice day out if you... More

What a gem this is! Beautiful lake surrounded by wonderful lawns for family picnics and ballgames. Wonderful woodland with walking and cycle trails, a fenced children's playground and an aerial adventure facility (charfges apply). Lovely tearoom/cafe and a pretty walled garden (£3.00 each) which is a lovely but a little tlc and some labels on plants would be beneficial. Also... More

I live nearby and have been to Lydiard Park many times. There's a kids playground, a small cafe, an even smaller tea room near the gardens, and lovely green fields. They also have static barbecue stands you can hire out. Parking has never been an issue (although I believe they are about to start charging). My friends also got married... More

Ok, I am not too bothered about the car park fees....but £40 to hire a BBQ, well bucket on a stand, is just pushing it a little. A picnic it was after that shock.

Lived in Swindon - Grange Park for 16 years - both dogs just loved this place. Have now moved away to Northumberland but come down to see friends and walk the pooch - he always heads straight to Lydiard Park - great place. As we walk there not worried about the car parking - though think it could be a... More

I went and it was totally amazing because it's beautiful the only down side is that the people need to pay the owners of the park to get in

I used to visit in my lunch break or after picking my son up from nursery. I would have a cup of coffee at least 3 times a week and my son regular icecreams and juice. we can't afford to pop in now as it's doubled the money we would spend. no longer a free day out...
