Dyrham Park

About

Dyrham Park, situated off the A46 near Bath, is nestled in a 270-acre (110 acre) ancient parkland filled with magnificent trees and breathtaking views reaching right over to Wales.  

Inside the baroque-style house visitors can get a flavour of 17th-century life with a fine collection of Dutch ceramics and fine art and there are tours of the conservation studio on certain days.

Splendid formal borders, idyllic ponds and a wildflower orchard are all features of the stunning garden which is being sensitively developed as a 21st-century garden with echoes of the past.

The sloping and spacious parkland’s a great space for young explorers to run free, be in nature and tick off challenges on their National Trust 50 things to do before you’re 11 3/4 list.

Garden and park tours run most days led by specialist volunteer guides or if you prefer to explore independently, there are lots of paths and self-led trails.  

Dyrham Park’s new exhibition, which opened in December 2021, is currently housing an exhibition on the world of the late 17th century when civil servant William Blathwayt created the Dyrham Park we know today. It puts the period into context introducing some of the events happening nationally and internationally as well as highlighting prominent figures from that period in history.

Project work is underway in various parts of the site at the moment meaning things are changing and it’s worth checking the website for the most up to date information before you visit.

The site-wide project will bring a variety of new things including a revamped play area and brand new café at Old Lodge in the middle of the parkland, due to open early in the summer of 2022. New paths through the parkland will be open in the first half of 2022 too, meaning better year-round access to the grounds which have had to close due to water-logging in previous years in winter.  The house will re-open after conservation and decoration work over Easter 2022 with improved lighting to illuminate the beautifully restored rooms. Brand new interpretation is due to be installed in the autumn of 2022 really bringing the newly refreshed house to life with interactive information for visitors to get involved with. Outside historic metal gates at the end of the garden’s Avenue are being restored and a parterre is set to be created later in 2022 linking back to plans of the original 17th-century garden.

There’s a large tea-room decorated with blue and white theme to mirror the Delftware in the house and, in warmer weather you could try Dyrham’s new tea garden. An ice-cream kiosk is also open on busier days in the year.

Dyrham Park is home to a National Trust shop selling cards, books, plants, gardening items, homeware and a wide variety of gifts.
