Late night Fridays at Dyffryn Gardens
August 3, 2018 - August 31, 2018
An event every week that begins at 12:00am on Friday, repeating until August 31, 2018
Make the most of the longer days and warmer nights.
Join us after work and stay late, soaking up the summer sun in the gardens with music being played on the south terrace for you to enjoy the relaxed ambience.
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.
