The formal garden is full of colour and interest whatever the season

Contrasting with the more rugged charms of the deer park, Dyrham's formal garden is a haven for anyone seeking a quiet stroll or beautiful place to relax and enjoy a picnic. For plant-lovers, there's an ever-changing kaleidoscope of colour and form to draw inspiration from, set against the backdrop of many mature trees, unusual shrubs and age-old landscape features.
