Autumn walking festival

Autumn colour at Dyrham Park

Autumn colour at Dyrham Park

We're taking part in the walking festival, which will see a whole host of walks on offer this month - from deer walks and garden tours to autumn colour trails and a behind the scenes look into a lost garden.

This month, you can...

  • Enjoy an autumn stroll around the parkland and see some of our fallow deer
  • Spot the pears growing on the stable wall and join us for our perry pear weekend
  • Visit the beautiful 17th-century mansion house, where our team is preparing for the roof project
  • Tick off some more 50 things at Old Lodge natural play area and check out our new nature table
  • Learn more about Mr Blathwayt's lost garden with a guided behind-the-scenes tour of the terraces
  • See how Dyrham Park and village was affected by the Great War with our Dyrham at War exhibition

Dyrham Park roof project and appeal

We're about to embark on a £3.5m major conservation project to replace our leaking roof. Work is set to start early 2015 and we as a property need to raise £500,000 towards the overall cost. We plan to remain open during the project.

Dyrham at war exhibition

Don't miss our new exhibition in the main house, Dyrham at War. Discover Dyrham's lost heroes of the First World War, including Major Henry Wynter Blathwayt, who would have inherited Dyrham Park.

Autumn pear harvest

We're currently collecting our pears to turn into Dyrham Park Perry. Join us for our perry pear weekend on 18-19 October, where we'll be sampling the new batch of still and sparkling perry.
