Lydiard Park is the ancestral home of the Viscounts Bolingbroke. The ground floor state rooms of the Palladian house are open to visitors all year round. Containing original family furnishings, portraits and photographs of the St John family and ornate plasterwork, the house is beautifully presented and outside the 18th century ornamental fruit and flower Walled Garden has recently been restored to its former glory. St Mary's Church next to the house also contains some exceptional monuments to the St John family.
