Winter at Dyrham Park

Enjoy a winter walk at Dyrham Park

Throughout the year there are scenes to behold at Dyrham Park as the trees, plants and animals undergo their annual cycle.

Dyrham Park is a great place to witness the changing seasons and in the winter months you can see the deer in their winter coats, watch the house glisten in the frost and see bright bursts of colour in the garden.

Winter walks

With walks for all abilities, from a short stroll down the paved driveway to the house to our Prospect walk which takes you out to the viewpoint where you can look across the Bristol channel to Wales. 

Join us at 11.15am and 2pm every day for a guided walk around the park with one of our expert ranger guides – learn more about the deer, the trees and the landscape.

Please note: We do not allow dogs into the main park, but they are welcome in the dog walking area next to the car park.

A winter garden

Like the park, the garden offers a spectacular scene in winter with sniffs of colour peeking out through the winter trees. Look out for the little robins darting about too.

Take a wander through the crisp grasses in the perry pear orchard, with Christmas card scenes as you look over past the bee hives towards St Peter’s Church and follow the Serpentine path alongside the ponds back towards the courtyard garden.

'Behind the scenes' tours

While some of the house remains closed following the major re-roofing project, we are offering you the chance to go behind the scenes with our daily guided tours. You can see conservation in action and learn more about the new displays we're working on.

Spaces are limited and tours are bookable on arrival at visitor reception on a first come, first served basis.

Seasonal produce

The National Trust shop is a shopper's delight, selling gifts, cards and edible goods - including National Trust biscuits, curds and jams as well as Dyrham Park venison (subject to availability). 

And what visit would be complete without a hot beverage and sweet treat in the tea-room? A seasonal menu offers hot and cold food and drinks in a quaint setting.
