Lydiard Park Coronavirus Statement

Lydiard Park is open for exercise and recreation. Please remember to follow social distancing rules at all times.

Toilet facilities are available Monday to Sunday between 9am and 4pm. Enhanced cleaning will take place twice a day and toilets will be inspected hourly.

Please maintain a safe distance of 2 metres from others when entering, waiting, or leaving the toilets. Queueing must be 2 metres apart with no more than six people in the queue. Before leaving the facility, please wash your hands thoroughly. Hand sanitiser will also be available.

We are delighted to be offering a takeaway service for hot food, snacks, ice creams, and drinks. We would prefer payment by card, but we will accept cash. Social distancing measures will be in place. Takeaway facilities will be located at the Forest Café and next to the Coach House Tea Rooms (subject to weather conditions).

The children’s play area, BBQs, historic house, Walled Garden and Lydiard Hotel remain closed while further work is carried out to make sure they’re safe.

Please use the PayByPhone mobile ticketing option to pay for parking where possible.

Please note that we are not currently taking BBQ bookings. If you have booked and paid for a BBQ at Lydiard Park, please email us on LydiardEvents@swindon.gov.uk with your contact details and we will be in touch to arrange cancellations.
