Things to see and do for families

The Great Summer Escape

Run as fast as a hare, jump far like a squirrel and use your beady owl eyes to spot woodland animals in the gardens at Dunham Massey this summer. Treat yourself to an ice cream in the park and make your staycation one to remember. Don't forget to not apporach or feed the deer to keep them healthy.

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.
