Out and about this season

People in the allotment at Dyrham Park

There’s a lot to explore outside this season as the garden springs into flower and warmer weather gives you chance to get out and breathe in the fresh air.

Many of our garden’s highlights will come into bloom with wisteria in Fountain Court, our Judas tree in flower as well as more than 10,000 tulips.

Fancy trying something new?

Reflecting plans afoot for a reinstated 17th century style parterre near the house, we are holding cress parterre sessions in June where you can design and grow your very own mini version.
We are also holding a series of four special garden days on in June, “month of the garden”, which include a talk, a guided walk and a chance to ask our garden team questions.

Free guided tours

Every day, we run seasonal tours of the garden which will pick out highlights and explain some history as well as outlining plans for the garden’s future. There are also twice daily tours of the ancient parkland led by our rangers with expert knowledge of our 200 fallow deer.


If you prefer to explore independently you might like to try out our new foreign exploration trail which takes you on a journey to see what far-flung lands our trees came from.

See the notice board in the courtyard on arrival for the list of tours on the day.
