Lying to the west of Swindon is the beautiful historic estate of Lydiard Park. It is set in 260 acres of parkland and includes an extensive children's play area, Lydiard House, walled garden as well as the park and woodland to explore. There is also a cafe and tea rooms. A range of events take place throughout the year, including open air theatre and there is always lots for all the family to enjoy.
Lydiard Park is once again taking part in Heritage Open Days from 13th – 14th September and entrance to its attractions (House, walled garden and St Mary's Church) will be free. There will also be special openings of the Ice House.
