The History & People of Dyrham Park

Season: 5 Episode: 24

Dyrham Park, a honey-coloured building nestled in an ancient deer park at one end of the Cotswold Ridge, was transformed from a Tudor house into a baroque mansion and has elegant formal gardens, woodland and lakes.

In this episode, we look at the people that made the house the impressive building we see today run by the National Trust.
