Overview

Dyrham Park is home to an ancient deer park, 17th-century house and formal garden. In 2015/16, the house underwent a huge conservation project to replace the leaking roof and install a biomass boiler. The house and garden are now in a state of transformation and include new tours, areas and exhibitions.

Wonderful for a family outing. The park area is extensive with plenty of picnic possibilities. The formal gardens are lovely and the house has plenty to offer the history lover. A good cafe on site.

No dogs are able to go in the main park because there are heards of deer, however there is a section as you exit which is outside the deer park that dogs can go.
