Lyme Park, a National Trust property located in the Peaks District (county Derbyshire). If it looks familiar at all, then it would be to those romantics who watched the BBC series 'Pride and Prejudice', where Lyme Park featured as Darcy's Home.

  Lyme Park is one of the more popular National Trust properties. Being great fans of 'Pride and Prejudice', Jane and I had wanted to see Lyme Park. Only the exteriors were used in the series. Nevertheless the place did not disappoint - with extensive parklands, gardens and lovely sandstone buildings.
