A great escape outdoors this 'Twixmas'

Winter at Dyrham Park

Allow yourself a bit of breathing space between Christmas and New Year with some great walks and trails at Dyrham Park.

PLEASE NOTE - plans are subject to change due to coronavirus restrictions.


Between Christmas and New Year is a great time to visit. We're open on Boxing Day right through to January with a great chance to wrap up warm, stretch your legs and work off some of the excesses of the festive season.

You can wander through the 270 acres of parkland and take in the magnificent views over to Wales at your own pace or follow one of the walks, details of which are at Visitor Reception.

There will also be a self-led poetry trail through the terraces where visitors can get away from the hustle and bustle and reflect on 17th-century winter verse.  

The popular mindfulness trail will also be back for the winter which takes you around the park and garden suggesting places and areas to stop, think and really focus on you, your feelings and your connections with nature at that moment.

Children's trail

Peter Rabbit™ and his friends will be popping up in and around the garden in a special winter trail especially designed for your younger visitors.

Refresh yourselves

As well as all of this, you can enjoy hot drinks and sweet treats in the takeaway kiosk or a spot of shopping in our National Trust shop, with edible delights as well as cards and gifts.

Dyrham Park is open daily from 10am-4pm (last entry at 3pm). The whole site is closed on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day.
