Lydiard Park, Swindon

4.5
Lydiard Park is the ancestral home of the Viscounts Bolingbroke. The Palladian house, Walled Garden, formal parkland and surrounding pasture are the striking remains of a great country estate, which reached its peak in the 18th century.

Inside Lydiard House, you can wander through the elegant State Rooms, where ornate plasterwork and original family furnishings are displayed alongside portraits of the St John family, who lived here from Elizabethan times. The Walled Garden is a rare example of a Georgian ornamental fruit and flower garden with seasonal displays of beautiful flowers, fruit trees and topiary.
