It may be getting colder, but there's still plenty to do at Dunham. Take a look at the events listing to find out what's on, from themed guided walks to story telling and art:

Autumn Highlights

  • Visit the WW1 hospital until 11 November

  • See Treasures of the Collection in the house
  • Spot our fallow deer in the park

The spectacle of the deer rut

Autumn brings the amazing spectacle of the deer rutting. Find out more about the Dunham herd by joining our ranger team on an early morning walk, complete with a bacon buttie and a hot drink.

Treasures from the collection

The Booths and Greys amassed a large collection of over 25,000 objects. The changes brought about by the recreation of the Stamford Hospital have given us a unique opportunity to show some of these treasures in a different way.

Farewell to Stamford Hospital

The hospital (and house) close on 11 November 2014 and will reopen from 14 February 2015 with new stories of the patients and nurses brought to life by actors, original archive material and objects.
