Spend the day playing at Lyme Park, House and Garden
Get transported back to Edwardian times, at the mansion and extensive grounds of Lyme Park.
If you’re a Pride and Prejudice fan, Lyme Park will have a deeper significance to you than most: that’s right, this is the location of that lake – out of which Mr. Darcy emerged, dripping, from the water. Phew.
If that’s not enough to tempt you here, perhaps the herd of red- and fallow deer found grazing on the 1,300 acre sporting estate will – and that’s before you go into the mansion itself.
This isn’t one of those stuffy stately places for adults either; kids can take to the stage and play dress up in the house, while outside, the rope bridges and slides in Crow Park should keep any cries of “I’m bored” firmly away.
