Being a huge fan of the 1995 adaptation of Pride and Prejudice, I couldn't wait to see Lyme Park. I wasn't let down. The house is beautiful and the grounds are spectacular. We are national trust members so couldn't believe it's free entry for us....More

Expensive due to £5.00 parking fee! Spoilt the experience, only wanted to go for a walk!

What a place to visit. The scene of D'Arcy's impromptu swim. The grounds are extensive and would need more than just one visit to truly appreciate. The house is absorbing and the views from various parts of the grounds breathtaking. Only letdown National Trust was...More

A friend of mine is responsible for the afternoon teas and I understand they are very good you have to book and I think they are between £15 and £20
