Book Fair at Dyffryn Gardens
June 23, 2018 @ 10:30 am - June 24, 2018 @ 4:00 pmNormal admission prices apply
Looking for a great book to get stuck into this summer?
Need some pool side reading for an upcoming holiday?
We will be holding a second-hand book fair on the south terrace of Dyffryn House, looking out at our majestic gardens.
Our second-hand book shops have brought in much needed donations from our generous visitors and all money raised from this book fair stay at Dyffryn to maintain, restore and reinstate parts of the house and garden.
Dyffryn house stands at the heart of the gardens. Listed at grade II* status, it had been remodelled from an earlier mansion that dates back to an estate from the 8th century.
These modifications were completed in 1892-3.
The Cory family were industrialists and made their wealth through coal.
The house provided a secluded family home within commutable distance of their business interests across south Wales.
The house came to the National Trust in 2013 without a collection.
No original belongings, pieces of furniture or art remain in the house, however is has given the National Trust a great opportunity to do something different.
