Dyffryn Gardens celebrates completed restoration project
Dyffryn Gardens is celebrating its completed restoration project. Three of the garden rooms were selected to be restored this year and work has been completed with astounding success.
The project set out to dramatically restore the garden rooms by repairing the stone work and reintroducing statues, pots urns and the original planting schemes. The work has been many months in progress and involved many in-house experts.
Over the past five months gardeners, researchers, conservators and volunteers have been working hard to meet the deadline which is now upon us. Countless hours have been dedicated to returning the rooms to their original splendour and they will be opened to the public on 17 July at 10am.
Stephanie Evans, Conservation Manager for National Trust said “there is so much to see, we have transformed three tired and lacklustre gardens into a symphony of colour. The gardens have been restored to how they would have looked when then Cory’s lived here in the 1920s. We are incredibly proud of what has been achieved in the past 6 months and we can’t wait to share it with our visitors.”
You can enjoy the transformed gardens 7 days a week between 10am and 6pm, or you can pack your dinner into a picnic and enjoy it al fresco in the evening sun until 8pm every Thursday between 23 July and 27 August.
