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. There is a children's play area, Cafe & Tea Rooms, and beautiful grounds to explore. Its within easy reach of the M4. As you go round the park, you will see many of the remnants of this once-grand country estate. Many of the 18th century historic landscape features have been restored, including the Ice House in the woodlands near the house, which was used to store ice to chill food in the house in the summer months. The large lake was also reinstated and the Georgian Walled Garden was restored to its former glory.
