Garden rooms project
We are transforming three of the ten garden rooms back to their 1920s splendour, the Pompeian garden, Paved court and Reflecting pool.
This will include repairs to stonework, reinstating statues and new planting schemes.
This week we are returning the original planting scheme to the Paved Court and relaying the turf in the Pompeian Garden. Stop by to check on our progress today.
Poetry at Dyffryn
The celebrated poet, writer and professor Tony Curtis joins us this year for a one year residency. He will be producing a series of poems inspired by Dyffryn and its stories. His work will be displayed throughout the gardens later in the summer, but for now you can read some of his work here.
Join one of our knowledgeable guides on Wednesdays, Fridays and Saturdays at 11am for a tour of the gardens. Tours last approx. 1 hour and cannot always be guaranteed as they are volunteer led.
