Overview
More
Dyrham Park is home to an ancient deer park, 17th-century house and formal garden. In 2015/16, the house underwent a huge conservation project to replace the leaking roof and install a biomass boiler. The house and garden are now in a state of transformation and include new tours, areas and exhibitions.

Not in the main deer park, house and garden. With the exception of assistance dogs. We do have a dog walking area next to the car park if needed.
