I often visit Dunham Park to walk around the grounds but I was very impressed to see the current performances and war information within the hall and gardens. Great addition and very informative. New visitor centre is also nice, although I do miss the wildlife that you used to be able to see from the path, it would seem all... More

There is plenty to do at Dunham and it is typical of a National Trust property. It is suitable for all the family and when we visited the First World War exhibition was on and this was particularly interesting. It can be very busy in the eateries at meal times, so pick your time wisely if you want to eat.

We are lucky to live within walking distance of Dunham Massey. It's a lovely old deer park, nice to walk in with pretty gardens and a small lake. Avoid on bank holiday - try instead to get there midweek when the crowds are smaller.

As a keen photographer I'm always on the look out for interesting, beautiful and photogenic locations Dunham Massey fits the bill exactly, also as a national trust member is means entry for car and to the gardens are free. Although it's autumn DM is still a beautiful place and a very peaceful way of spending a few hours. All staff... More

This is a wonderful old stately pile, fully furnished and a snapshot of how generations of undoubtedly posh people actually lived. Our guide told us that the occupants never threw anything else and this place is crammed with chattels from huge chandeliers and four poster beds to hundreds of pieces of silver from candlesticks to goblets. I mean it would... More

We love love love Dunham park. The Hall is really interesting but the gardens are absolutely amazing. We go here sooo much, as it's local, but that aside, anyone would enjoy this place. From the deer to the WW1 hospital re-enactment, to the really great cafe, this place is definately worth a visit.

Taking the trip around the mill, you are shown all the process of the cotton, take in the apprentice house, a great walk around the gardens and finish off with tea & scones in the cafe. A great day out for all the family.
