Lyme 2-for-1 entry

Get one free entry with one full-paying adult, with your Gardeners’ World Magazine 2-for-1 entry card. Valid at 392 gardens.

One of the UK’s grandest parkland estates, Lyme Park is 50 minutes from central Manchester. Its 1,400 acres offer countless breathtaking views. Walk to nearby Bowstones, where on a clear day you can see seven counties. Look out for stags in the deer park and discover the estate’s many enchanting follies. Enjoy colour all year in the series of formal Victorian gardens, which include a sunken Dutch garden with central fountain. Exotic plants are displayed in the orangery, while the Edwardian rose garden is a sensory treat. Be sure to take a stroll around the lake too, where Mr Darcy took a dip in the BBC production of Pride and Prejudice.


Check before you travel

Before setting off check the garden’s website or call direct, as opening details can vary and one-off restrictions may apply.

We advise checking the garden’s own website or calling them direct to ensure the published details are accurate, as opening times and restrictions may vary.

Always take your 2 for 1 card with you

Some gardens have pre-booking systems in place – take your 2 for 1 card with you to validate your booking.

If a garden offers both pre-booking and walk-up options, we recommend booking prior to your visit to avoid disappointment should the garden be busy.

Please don’t make multiple pre-bookings or share your 2 for 1 card – card misuse will invalidate your discount claim at the garden.
