LAZY FRIDAY: MUMS AND DADS BRING YOUR LITTLE DEAR TO SEE THE LITTLE DEER IN LYME PARK

Bring the kids to Lyme Park for an adventure and fun.

It is an early Tudor house that has been renovated while keeping a lot of the older and valuable furniture and artwork.

MORE ABOUT THE HOUSE

The mile-long driveway to Lyme Park creates a real sense of anticipation, and the house is well worth the wait.

Inside the house there are the most incredible Mortlake Tapestries, an important collection of clocks, beautifully furnished rooms, along with a colourful family history.

WHERE IS LYME PARK?

Lyme Park is in Disley, Stockport Near Manchester.

HISTORY OF LYME PARK

A scene from ‘Pride and Prejudice’ was filmed at Lyme Park in 1995.  It was the scene where Darcy emerges from the lake.

A Tudor House was transformed into a huge Italian like palace in the 18th century.

Surrounding the house are tranquil Victorian Gardens, with roses, Reflection Lake and sunken ornamental garden with paths between the beds.

WHAT ELSE IS THERE TO DO BESIDES WALKING THROUGH THE BEAUTIFUL HOUSE?

Stroll around the gardens, sit on the grass, or wander lazily by the lake (where Darcy and Elizabeth meet at ‘Pemberley’), then venture beyond the garden, where the medieval deer park stretches into the distance.
You will see fallow and red deer.

You can go looking for ‘The Cage,’ it’s an 18th Century Hunting Tower, or explore the woods and discover the Lantern Folly with its fabulous views.

Delicious food is prepared in the Lyme kitchens. And don’t be surprised to see Venison on the menu.

Need some Retail Therapy?  There are plenty of shops close at hand, where you can buy gifts and souvenirs.

For a wonderful day out – Lyme Park has everything.

WHAT CAN THE KIDS DO?

It’s an adventure playground with lots of organised events for the kids throughout the year.

The kids will enjoy seeing the deer wandering around the grounds freely. These gentle creatures are very timid; so don’t do anything to frighten them.

WHAT’S NEW THIS YEAR?

Ask about the Children’s Activity Packs. In the house the kids can take a pest detective quiz.

WHO OWNS LYME PARK?

Lyme Park is owned and managed by the National Trust (NT) and is partly financed by Stockport Metropolitan Borough Council.
