Recommendation by Lemi
Pemberley was brought to life in the 1995 BBC adaptation of “Pride and Prejudice.” Lyme Park is the lovely estate that stood as Austen’s Pemberley on-screen. The south pond is exactly where Fitzwilliam Darcy, played by Colin Firth, emerged from a little swim. It was a spontaneous and intimate moment that contrasted with Mr. Darcy’s usually rigid public persona, and in a twist of fate, Elizabeth was there to catch it. The iconic scene became BBC’s contribution to Austen canon, which obviously won the hearts of many loyal fans. Lyme Park is open to the public for both outdoor excursions and Austen-appreciation. Explore the Edwardian rose garden and its stunning landscape; or dive deep into another era inside the stately home.
