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 has been through an exciting period of restoration. It includes the repair and preservation of Dartington’s historic Deer Park Wall through essential and lasting conservation works and the creation of new accessible and interpreted walks through the surrounding parkland. The Deer Park Tour provides a fascinating insight into an important part of Dartington’s rich history revealed by this work.
The volunteer-led Deer Park Tour starts under the archway entrance to the courtyard next to the Barn Cinema box office. It departs at 11am every Monday and Friday, and takes 90 minutes. The tour is free to individuals and small groups (see below for larger tours), although there is an opportunity at the end to make a donation towards the upkeep of the estate.
Dartington would like to warmly thank our volunteers who make these tours happen.
