    It doesn't have a gauge, it's not that sort of boiler. It's an 'open vented' boiler which will be automatically topped up from a feed and expansion tank (usually in the loft) so doesn't need to be re-pressurised manually. Here's a diagram from the ff250 manual.

    Ok thankyou for your reply the reason I asked question I have 3 radiators that are only getting warm mainly warm at top and cooler at bottom and a radiator in bathroom that doesn’t get warm at all and someone suggested it maybe the pressure has dropped but obviously it’s not that...

    It maybe a balancing issue, or the system is sludged up and needs cleaning. You can find more info in the Wiki Plumbing FAQ's See 2. & 5.

    The ideal classic was supplied with an optional sealed system kit.
    If this is the case then the system pressure gauge would be visible at top of boiler.

    It could also be installed remotely from the boiler.
    How many tanks do you have in the loft?
    Do you have a red tank in the house anywhere?
