Lyme Park

Magnificent Italian Garden below the house.

Don’t miss the Orangery with steps to the Top Lawn and the herbaceous borders. Beyond is the Rose Garden – divided in four with a pool and central fountain.

And if you’re feeling energetic, climb the hill to The Cage. Built as a hunting tower in the 16th century, it’s alleged that prisoners were kept here.

Lyme is a 1400 acre estate so there are plenty of places to walk. Dogs are allowed in the Park and moorland but not in the gardens – read the NT policy before visiting.

This is where the scene of Mr Darcy emerging from the lake in the 1995 adaptation of Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice was filmed.

National Trust members visit for free.
