The Secret Life of Lyme

The Secret Life of ... the garden

Garden open every day, 10.30am-5pm (last entry 4.30pm)

The beautiful garden at Lyme is home to many animals and you may be surprised at some of the things they get up to!

Pick up an explorer map and head out in to the garden. Climb in to a bird's nest, pretend you are a bee making honey in a hive and see if you can learn the call sounds of the birds in the gardens. For little ones there is fun to be had and robins to spot; for older children there are interesting facts to collect along the way!

House open Friday - Tuesday, 11am - 5pm (last entry 4pm) (Also Thursdau 26 July - 30 August)

The house is very old and has many secrets to keep - can you help discover them?

There are secret doors hidden in corners and a room where a skeleton was discovered! Follow the robin around the house and see which rooms hold which secrets. Tick the secrets off your list each time you find them.
