Sheffield Park & Garden: Reimagined and Revitalized

Royal Oak is raising money this year to help the National Trust restore and re-imagine the spectacular woodland garden, Sheffield Park and Garden. Located in East Sussex and one of the most visited properties in the National Trust, Sheffield Park and Garden is a designed landscape, created over centuries by a series of owners for pleasure and play. Leading landscape and garden designers have lent their artistic vision to the property including Capability Brown and Humphry Repton.

Here's our pick of National Trust places that have starred in adaptations of Austen's novels.

Cooking & Traditions

Try this recipe from renowned British steakhouse, Hawksmoor. From farming and food-obsessed families, founders and childhood friends, Will & Huw, opened the first Hawksmoor in East London in 2006. They had a simple three-fold goal: find the best possible beef; master the simple-seeming art of cooking the perfect steak; and create an environment where everyone, guests and staff, could relax and enjoy themselves.
