Dyrham Park

Dyrham Park was designed and built in two stages. The first stage (1692) was designed by Samuel Hauduroy, and the second stage (1704) by the well-known architect William Talman. Dyrham Park has been featured in films such as 1993's Remains of the Day. The house was built by William Blathwayt who was King William III's Secretary of War. His passion for all things Dutch can be seen in the paintings and furniture to be seen in the house. Today, Dyrham Park is managed by the National Trust.
