A souvenir guidebook for Lydiard House & Park is now on sale to help inform visitors about the unique collections and architecture at Swindon’s very own stately home.
Written by Sophie Cummings, Collections Manager at Lydiard House, the guidebook is an ideal way for visitors to find out more about the Swindon Borough Council-owned historic park.
The guidebook provides an in-depth look into the history of the St John family, who lived at Lydiard for over 500 years through some of the most interesting, and turbulent episodes in English history.
The book is illustrated with colour photographs of the interiors of the State Rooms and inside St Mary’s church as well as stunning images of the walled garden and parkland.
This 28-page glossy colour souvenir guide is on sale at Lydiard House priced at £4. For more information, please contact Lydiard House on 01793 770401 or go to
