Visit to Dyrham Park mansion and gardens

For those who love wondering around stately homes and gardens. If the weather's good that day it might be worth taking a picnic along...
Here is the spiel on Dyrham from the National Trust website: "Spectacular late 17th-century mansion, garden and deer park.Explore 270 acres (110 hectares) of ancient parkland, where a historic herd of fallow deer roams freely and magnificent trees and breathtaking views abound.
Inside the impressive mansion, built by hard-working civil servant William Blathwayt, discover fascinating interiors little changed in 300 years, as well as a rich collection that includes superb Dutch art and ceramics of the period.
Complete your visit with a relaxing stroll in the elegant West Garden with its splendid borders, idyllic ponds and wildflower orchard".

      That's a shame. Maybe we can go again mid summer. Saying that it is lovely and sunny right now. Hope you get well soon.

    Hopefully meet you in the tea room. Shame about the weather forecast :( Is it 11 am still?

    May 6

    • Romy

      Yes it's still 11. I know, real shame about the weather. Heigh ho. Hope you get to make it.

    Hi Yoshi, We are meeting at the Courtyard tea room. There are 16 of us so we can wait in comfort there rather than stand around the ticket office. The weather forecast is for rain unfortunately so we can shelve the picnic idea. We can have something to eat at the Courtyard tea rooms once we’ve seen the house. I assume we will go for the `Whole Property’ tickets which include the house, garden and park as you can’t get a ticket for the house only anyway. Re Gift Aid, full details are at the foot of the page on this link: http://www.nationaltrust.org.uk/dyrham-park/prices/. Let them know on the day if you decide on Standard Admission though as sometimes they charge the Gift Aid prices without telling you. Hope this helps. Just a reminder, I'll be wearing a navy baseball cap on the day so you can spot me. Bye for now.

      Thank you Romy. I used to live in Bath but never been there. See you on Saturday!!

      May 6

  • Yoshi

    Questions please - Q1 where are we meeting? Q2 Which ticket should I get? I noticed there are few different type of tickets. Q3 I always confused what is the different between tickets with or without gift aid? Q4 Are we organising a picnic? Personally a nice coffee and a cake will do for me!!

    Hi I am hoping to come but having some root canal dental work done the day before so may have to wimp out last minute :(. I don't live far from here and have been before. Beautiful place. You can get the bus down to the house when you pay to get in at the entrance or walk down. Would be nice to walk down together? Looking forward to meeting you all.
