Lyme Park – indulging my Pride & Prejudice obsession

Alyson Goldman - Tuesday February 14, 2017 8:04

Well… it is Valentine’s Day after all, so please excuse me or better yet indulge with me in these beautiful Pride & Prejudice images. If you’ve found your Mr. Darcy/Elizabeth imagine visiting the Pemberley Walk together, if you haven’t then perhaps it’s just that part of the story where Mr. Wickham’s charm is getting the best of everyone, don’t fret he’ll run off with Lydia and all will be sorted.

The 1995 BBC television series featuring the most perfect Mr. Darcy, Colin Firth featured National Trust property Lyme Park, for the most pivotal scene of course…when Mr. Darcy emerges from Pemberley’s lake fully clothed.

In 2013, Drama, a new digital TV channel dedicated to British programs installed a frighteningly large statue, commemorating this fantastic scene in fiberglass.
