Walks at Dyrham Park
Dyrham Park is a nature lover's dream, home to 270 acres of parkland and hundreds of trees. Throughout the year, Dyrham Park is the perfect backdrop to enjoy the outdoors, have a walk and get closer to nature.
There are many magnificent vistas around the grounds and a good way of taking them in is by going on a guided walk with a volunteer.
The parkland walk is a 45-minute ranger-led walk and is a great opportunity to visit the site’s key viewpoints, enjoying the Cotswold landscape and looking across to Wales and the Black Mountains.
Walks take place on most days in the morning and afternoon. No booking is needed and normal admission charges apply.
Guided garden walks take place on selected weekdays on mornings and afternoons. You can find out about what's in bloom and and future plans for the garden.
Specialist longer guided walks also take place on Wednesdays, focussing on topics such as the village of Dyrham and the trees of Dyrham.
Check here for dates and times of all the guided walks.

Copies of the trail are available from Visitor Reception.
On the Journey of Discovery trail you can take in the quieter southern side of the park. Little ones can look out for wooden sculptures along the way. Copies of the trail are available from Visitor Reception.
