Summer at Dunham Massey

Summer is here and there are lots of activities for you to try as a whole family at Dunham Massey. From 26 July 2021 you can stretch up high, balance on a beam, dance, leap and run wild on our outdoor activity trail. Chill out afterwards with an ice cream and a gentle stroll amongst the flowers. There’s plenty for you to enjoy whilst keeping your little ones entertained.

Things to see and do for families

Something for everyone

A summery stroll...

Explore the gardens and deer park to get close to nature this summer. Relax amongst lush greenery, bright colours and floral scents in the gardens or try to spot the fallow deer sunbathing in the park – but please help us to look after the herd by not feeding or approaching them. You may even spot the flash of a blue kingfisher darting along the canal.

Treat yourself

Stop to refuel during your visit with a trip to the Stamford Café or Parlour. Treat yourself to a refreshing hot or cold drink, light snack or please the whole family with a delicious ice cream – yum! Picnickers can enjoy the beautiful surroundings on the garden lawn or use the picnic tables in the North Park. Help us to look after the deer by not picnicking in the deer park.
