From the tiniest of bugs to the tallest of trees, the natural world can be as magical as the children’s stories we read.

At the heart of Dunham Massey’s fairy-tale summer is a self-led family trail of discovery and imagination. Follow the trail and uncover moments of magic with storytelling, performance and crafts, perfect for summer days.


23rd July – 7th September 2022

Join Red the Brave on an adventure in Dunham’s North Park. Test your physical balancing skills on the Log Pile while you consider the delicate balance of nature’s needs. Discover the deer park and find out how you measure up against the ancient trees all around you with Jack and the Green Fingered Giant.

Drop by Dunham’s moat and meet the birds and ducks that have a message about the brilliance of difference.

Meet Dunham’s collection of characters, inspired by those from traditional fairy tales, as they lead the whole family on a journey of magical discovery and activity.

Don’t miss a chance to take a moment to relax with the family at the fairy-tale book nook in the Orangery.


25 July – 2 September

Every weekday during the school summer holidays, we’ll be adding a little magic to the proceedings through special daily events and activities suitable for all imaginations. Look out for further details on Dunham Massey’s social media.
