Self-led walking trails at Dyrham Park
With 270 acres of ancient deer park, formal gardens and woodland terraces waiting to be discovered, Dyrham Park is the perfect place for a brisk winter walk. Our downloadable walking trails can take you on a journey of discovery through history, show you the artistry of the gardens and introduce you to sweeping vistas across the channel. You’re spoilt for choice when it comes to finding a walk to suit you.
Things to bear in mind before you set off
The parkland can become very muddy during, and after, periods of wet weather; we advise wearing suitable footwear and outdoor clothing.
Due to the natural lay of the land, Dyrham Park has many hills and slopes. If you have any concerns about the accessibility of your chosen route, please talk to visitor reception when you arrive. They'll be more than happy to offer you guidance and advise you of any alternative routes that may be more suitable to your requirements.
Dyrham Park is home to a herd of wild fallow deer who roam freely around the park. As such, dogs (other than assistance dogs) are not permitted on site. If you're after a new spot to walk your dog, our neighbours Prior Park Landscape Garden and Tyntesfield both have dog-friendly routes.
