Spring at Dyrham Park

Toddlers amongst daffodils

In springtime, Dyrham Park is awash with seasonal colour - from snowdrops to daffodils and crocuses to tulips.

The journey from the car park to the house follows a winding driveway with great views of the 17th-century house. You may even spot some of our wild fallow deer on the way down.

Daily guided park walks offer you the chance to learn more about the ancient deer park and track the magnificent creatures - which lose their antlers in April before re-growing them over the summer ahead of the autumn rut.

An ever-changing garden

If you head into the garden, you can join us on our journey as we develop a 21st-century garden with echoes of the past. 

The long lawns have been replaced with vibrant borders, full of spring colour - including tens of thousands of tulips, which usually rear their heads in April.

You can sample the sights, sounds and smells of spring on one of our daily guided garden tours.

Inside the house

Like the garden, the house is on a journey of transformation. March sees the launch of new conservation studio tours where you can learn more about how we care for the house and its collection.

Mr Blathwayt's apartment gives you a flavour of life in the 17th-century. You'll learn more about Dyrham Park founder William Blathwayt and get to see highlights of the collection - including the Van Hoogstraten perspective painting.

Easter holidays

From Saturday 24 March until Sunday 8 April there will be a children's Easter trail, run in association with Cadbury's. You can collect a copy of the self-led daily trail from visitor reception for £2.50 with a chocolate prize at the end.
