Join one of our knowledgeable guides on Wednesdays, Fridays and Saturdays at midday for a tour of the gardens. Tours last approx. 1 hour and cannot always be guaranteed as they are volunteer led. 

The garden rooms project

We have transformed three of the ten garden rooms back to their 1920s splendour. The Pompeian Garden, Paved Court and the Reflecting Pool. This has included repairs to the stonework, reinstating statues and new planting schemes. The rooms have now been completed and are looking stunning. Visit us this summer to see.

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.
