I was a huge Dallas fan back in the day, so this was huge nostalgia for me. The museum was great, complete with hand and boot prints in cement tiles and signed by the cast members. The little tram ride from the museum to the house was a bit of fun information. As the familiar sights came into view, the... More

About 30mins drive from Arlington and a must for all Dallas fans. Very well organised tour and great tour guides. The tour allows you to wander around the house both inside and outside, taking in the famous balcony, pool area and outside dining table that featured so much in the show. The gift shop is great and the small walk... More

I had always wanted to visit Southfork so as we were in Dallas we decided to stop on our way home. I had always watched Dallas on TV on Fri. evenings. In some ways, it was disappointing. The pool wasn't as large as it looked on TV, but they explained that the actors had harnesses around them when they were... More

The entrance is a little confusing. You enter through the gift shop where there are no signs to guide you - but you must purchase your ticket at the checkout counter . The gift shop is done very well. The ranch and the house is old and tired with a musty smell throughout the house. The pool was green and... More

A little way out of Dallas, but worth the 45mins drive. Plenty of parking, and regular tours running from the visitors centre. Good views across the estate, and access to most of the main ranch building. Nothing is ever quite what it seems with TV - take the tour to find out more! A little dissapointed with the gift shop...

We wanted to see where the cult tv series was set, although it has had its day. We had a great time visiting all the ranch and the staff were all friendly and helpful. You can stay all day but we saw everything we wanted in about 3 hours. It only cost about £10 per adult which we thought was... More

A must if you watched Dallas, but a nice place even if you didn't. The tour of the house is great, and the guides are very friendly and full of knowledge. The shop is quite nice as well.

The place was so much smaller than I expected. The tour was great but I found that tricks of the camera made the location seem far more elegant and big on screen.

Since we're BIG Dallas fans, we own all14 seasons on dvd, spending a day at the Ranch, was really a wonderful experience! We highly recommend if you ever watched the show.

As a big fan of the show (old and new), this place was so exciting to see! The outside of the house has been maintained exactly as you might remember. The inside doesn't look like the Southfork from the show but it was still beautiful and our tour guide was so awesome that she still made the tour interesting! The... More
