About this event

A 700-year-old story awaits you on our volunteer-led Deer Park tours – learn about the people who lived here, the magnificent landscape, the deer themselves and the abundant wildlife.

The Deer Park is an exciting new development for Dartington. It includes the repair and restoration of Dartington’s historic Deer Park Wall through essential and lasting conservation works, creating new accessible and interpreted walks through the surrounding parkland, and encouraging more people to engage in the landscape including through a new schools’ programme and new volunteering opportunities.

Every Monday, 2-3pm, and Friday, 11am-12 noon. The last tour of 2018 will be on Monday 29 October, with tours returning in April 2019.

– Find out more about the Park in our Deer Park microsite

Tours are free – there is no need to book. In order to help keep this place special for everyone, an opportunity will be provided at the end of the tour for attendees to make an entirely optional donation towards the Gardens’ upkeep.

About us

Dartington is an old place with a new story.

The Dartington Experiment began in 1925 and was based on the idea that humans are many-sided – and how we need environments that encourage our whole being to flourish, in connection with nature and each other.

This idea is as true today is it ever was.
