Lyme Park
NATIONAL TRUST online: information and bookings

Originally a Tudor house, Lyme was transformed by the Venetianarchitect Leoni into an Italianate palace. Some of the Elizabethan interiors survive and contrast dramatically with later rooms. The state rooms are adorned with Mortlake tapestries, Grinling Gibbons wood-carvings and an important collection of English clocks. The 6.8ha (17-acre) Victorian garden boasts impressive bedding schemes, a sunken parterre, an Edwardian rose garden, Jekyll-style herbaceous borders, reflection lake, a ravine garden and Wyatt conservatory.

The garden is surrounded by a medieval deer park of almost 566ha (1,400 acres) of moorland, woodland and parkland, containing an early 18th-century hunting tower. Lyme appeared as Pemberley in the BBC' s adaptation of Jane Austen's novel Pride and Prejudice.
