The spectacular Lyme Park, originally Tudor, now resembles an ornate 18th-century Italianate palace.
Enjoy hearing visitors play the piano as you discover tapestries, clocks and beautifully furnished rooms. On display in the library is the Sarum Missal, the only surviving copy of a Caxton book printed in 1487, acquired with Art Fund help in 2008. The period gardens contain an Edwardian rose garden and a medieval deer park.
