Notice: We have been informed that there will be a power outage at Lyme Park next Tuesday (3rd March).

You're welcome to visit for a walk or run around the park.

Glorious house, surrounded by gardens, moorland and deer park

Welcome to Lyme Park. Nestling on the edge of the Peak District, Lyme Park was once home to the Legh family and, in its heyday a great sporting estate.

Step back in time to the Edwardian era - Lyme's 'Golden Era'. Enjoy lavish interiors, try out the piano, read a book in the library, or take the children to dress up on the stage. Delicate items restrict the opportunities for photography but the stage in the Long Gallery can be used to take pictures of visitors of all ages in fabulous fancy dress.

The 1,300 acre estate with its medieval herd of red and fallow deer offers fantastic walks and stunning views.

For a more tranquil walk explore the Edwardian rose garden, ravine garden or luxurious herbaceous borders next to the reflecting lake where a certain Mr Darcy met Miss Bennett in the BBC production of 'Pride and Prejudice'.

Children can let off steam in Crow Wood Playscape with its giant slide, badger den and rope walks, whilst the nearby Timber Yard Coffee Shop offers delicious hot and cold snacks, soups and range of cakes.

You can view online some of the items that Lyme has in it's collection. The site catalogues approximately three-quartes of a million National Trust objects with more being added daily.

Family Cinefilm from the 1920s

This is just a snippet of the cinefilm made by the Legh family in the 1920s and 1930s. The memories you can hear are from an interview with Mrs Priscilla Fryer, formerly the fourth Lady Newton. These beautiful sounds and images reveal Lyme as a place full of activity, fun and love.

Cadbury Eggsplorers

Cadbury is once again supporting us to host this year’s Easter Egg Trails. Your kids will love being eggsplorers for the day at Lyme Park. So join us for a family fun day over the Easter weekend. 

Winter garden

Lyme Park in the snow

The most special thing to see is when the plants are covered in frost, sparkling in the bright winter sun or when a heavy fall of snow turns the garden into a beautiful and magical wonderland.
