House of Discovery exhibition at Dyffryn Gardens

Discover more of Dyffryn’s history and find out how we’re looking after this special place in our new exhibition in the Morning Room of Dyffryn House.

  • Booking not needed
  • Free event (admission applies)

To celebrate the successfully completed Stoneworks project to restore the exterior of Dyffryn House, we have opened the Morning Room as an exhibition space.

Discover more about the different lives and fortunes of Dyffryn House since it was built in the 1890s. Find out about the conservation and restoration work we are carrying out to stabilise the building so that it stands proudly at the heart of the gardens for another 125 years.

The exhibition is open on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturday, 11am to 3pm and is free to enter (normal admission to the garden applies).
