About

Dunham Massey’s deer park covers an area of 192.7 acres and features formal avenues, woodland and parkland. Its pasture-woodland is occupied by a herd of fallow deer that have been resident in the park for hundreds of years.

Part of the Dunham Massey Estate, the park also has a magnificent collection of ancient trees. Many of the giant oak trees dating back as far as the 17th century, a true rarity in Britain today. As such, it is considered a site of national importance.

Dunham Park also has a history of housing rare insects and fungi in its ancient trees, drawing experts from around the world to research since the 1860s.

    Lots of options for different types of visits. Beautiful grounds for walks, dogs welcome but must be on a leash which is a shame but understandable as the deer can get extremely close. Interesting... Read full review
