They have opened up the roof for visitors while they are replacing the roof. It is a great opportunity to see how they do it. It felt perfectly safe although you are quite hight up. You can also purchase a tile which you can write on and it will be added to the roof, or you can donate £5 for... More

Have been visiting Dyrham Park with the family for many years and it has never failed to disappoint. Tip... Ask the volunteers were the deer are before setting off down towards the manor house! Great walks, great bulding and great tea room! Whilst you are there take a walk around the formal gardens which are very well main tained. Enjoy... More

A good time to go as the National Trust are replacing the roof & provide tours (75 feet up!). The building is encased in scaffolding, but the tour of the work certainly makes up for it. Looking behind the scenes at the work is really quite special. There is a huge park & the "lost terraces" are now being renovated... More

When we visited the roof was being restored and many artifacts had been removed. As a result, people could go up in a lft to view the roof and the refurbishment, those who don't mind heights. For those who didn't want to go on the roof, there was an exhibition of some of the items in store, which were mainly... More

We just dropped into Dyrham Park on a whim fairly late on Saturday afternoon and were surprised with what we found! The house is currently being re-roofed, so the entire structure is surrounded in scaffolding, but very imaginatively (bravely?) NT had organised roof-top tours around a scaffolding walkway. This was fascinating and well worth a wait, but meant that we... More

This is quite a nice attraction. We saw deer up very close. The exhibitions are good to see, even while restoration is in progress

Dyrham Park always a stunning place to visit, the house at the moment mostly shut off to visitors as they have started working on the roof. I have visited this property lots of times in many years and all seasons so was not there for the house this time, it was for the RARE chance to climb (or go in... More

Really good day out, and a great workout if your up for the walk up and down the hills to and from the car park, although there's always the bus if your not. The house is currently having the roof fixed, and there is a lot of scaffolding around the house, but they have managed to make this into a... More

Dyrham Park in right on my doorstep and I didn't even know! Gorgeous for walks and picnics. The roof is currently being renovated so you can go up to see the work and get spectacular views. Will go back in the summer months for a picnic by the pond. This is a place I will visit again and again.

The roof on the house is being replaced and should be completed by the end of this year (2015). Consequently there is much scaffolding and much of the contents are in store. You might think this would not be the time to visit but not so! National Trust are allowing access by lift to a covered platform above the roof... More
