Discover Lyveden

There are plenty of ways that you can enjoy Lyveden.

Borrow an audio guide

Lyveden's audio guides take you through the history of this fascinating place. The guide relates the origins of the New Bield, how Sir Thomas Tresham’s dreams were never realised and the family’s infamous involvement in the Gunpowder Plot.

Wander through the gardens

Lyveden's gardens are amongst the oldest in the country.  Ascend the spiral mounds, stroll the banks of the moat, visit the orchard and take in the beauty of one of the country's finest surviving examples of Elizabethan garden design.

Explore the Lodge

A great opportunity to strip back the layers of a traditional country house, Lyveden is home to an unfinished garden lodge that lets you see the inner structure of what was intended to be a fully functioning country residence, but was never completed.
