At Lyme we want to help you realise your dreams, so visit our Wardrobe Department when you arrive. Imagine having afternoon tea on the lawn in period costume finery!

Textile store

Not many people know that Lyme has a textile store full of beautiful materials. Over the next few months we’ll be uploading pictures of our textiles to the Collections website.

House volunteers

We couldn’t look after or open Lyme without our faithful volunteers. We have many roles to suit a wide range of interests, from getting up close with the collection during the winter clean, to welcoming visitors as they tour the house or delving into our archives.
