Get outdoors on one of the wonderful winter walks at Dyffryn Gardens, plus there's special bird watching events throughout January for your little bird enthusiasts!

Enjoy a fun-packed day at Dyffryn Gardens - explore 55 acres of beautiful gardens, featuring a humongous, 1/2 acre, wild play area for your kids. Let your cheeky monkeys get muddy, balance along enormous trees and jump from log to log along the stepping stones to their heart's’ content. 

Take the chance to explore the Dyffryn house, as well.  Worried the kids will be bored because museums are a no-touch zone? Well, tell the little ones to cheer up - the house at Dyffryn Gardens is a touch-all zone! All the original belongings have been replaced, so your tots can touch, play and explore as much as they want to.

Experience the hobbies of the Lady of the house - have a go at the sewing machine, play the piano and relax with a good book at the library. Step in the shoes of the Lord, type important letters on the old-time typewriters and lay a billiards challenge to your friends and family. There’s a little something at Dyffryn for every member of the family to enjoy!
