Dyrham Park house, home of William Blathwayt, is a Baroque mansion on 270 acres of ancient parkland. The parkland offers breathtaking views and a chance to see the freely roaming historic herd of fallow deer. In the mansion the fascinating interiors date back 300 years and include a rich collection of artefacts, from superb Dutch art to ceramics of the period.

Guided walks of the park and gardens are available, with a shuttle bus to take you from the carpark to the house and gardens if the walk is too far (or too steep). Feel free to explore the parkland on your own and the Old Lodge can used for family picnics and play. The gardens host seasonal events like performances of Shakespeare and jazz evenings.

The house, gardens and grounds are open to the public. For admission rates and seasonal opening times please visit their website. Dyrham Park cared for by the National Trust, is a 20 minute drive north of Bath.
