The short garden tours were interesting and informative. Awesome self guided tour up on the roof scaffolding as it was open to visitors during restoration. Opportunity to decorate and sign a roof slate was appreciated. Surprised how much of the mansion was open considering the delicate roof works above. Shop is small but has plenty of lovely good quality NT... More

Dyrham Park is being extensively renovated, but there is still lots to see. I took the rooftop expedition where one can see how the roof is being restaured. In itself interesting enough but also a good opportunity to see the vista's. There are explanatort panels andblots of volunteers. Also had a peek at the appartments of Mr Blaithsomething. Nice furnishing,... More

Dyrham is always interesting, but now it's a bit different! The roof is being replaced, and you can walk round the scaffolding at the top and see the craftsmen hard at work. The NT have made the most of the room closures by offering a tour of the rooms to see the furniture in storage, which is more interesting than... More

If you are the sort of person who likes looking behind the scenes or finding out how buildings are constructed or even watching other people hard at it go to see the conservation work taking place at Dyrham. A lift takes one up to top and one can see the rotten timbers and the men hard at work replacing various... More

A great day out, try and spot the deer through the trees, and walk around the gardens Visit whilst the house is covered in scaffolding for a unique experience get the lift or stairs to the top of the house and using the walkway (enclosed within the scaffolding) see the house and grounds from a totally different view which may...

The roof is being renovated at the moment so a lot of the house isn't open or has a lot of the interior in storage, so not a lot to see inside. The roof is open to visitors though & did make for interestingly viewing. The gardens are lovely & plenty to explore. Lovely little church, which had a display... More

A steep walk down to the house, we arrived during the bus driver’s lunch break. We saw lots of deer so didn’t mind the walk but grateful there was a bus for return journey as I have walking difficulties. We were aware the roof of the house was being replaced but were didn’t realise the extent of how little there... More

A must is the estate walk with Richard Cato (National Trust Volunteer). He made the estate come alive with his stories, enthusiasm and knowledge. He even managed to find us a new fawn with its mum - cute! We spent ages up close with the stags on our own walk on the estate where they came within touching distance of... More

We had a lovely day out at Dyrham Park. The deer walk is a great way too see a bit of the estate whilst getting up close with the deer in the estate. The garden tour is also fan and our guide, Christine Cole, really knew her stuff. The picnic tables near the carpark were very useful. We finished our... More

Dyrham Park is situated just off the A46, near to the M$ motorway junction, and its two main attractions are the beautifully kept grounds and the house itself, and both are spectacular. You can spend hours in the grounds just wandering around enjoying the lawns and gardens. At certain times of the year they have star artists appearing and then... More
