The icing’s on the cake for Lyme

There was a very special visitor at the National Trust’s Lyme Park yesterday – a life-size cake of Mr Darcy was unveiled to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the BBC Pride and Prejudice series.

The Mr Darcy cake

Lyme was used as Pemberley, Mr Darcy’s home, in the 1995 series. In the scene Colin Firth, playing Mr Darcy, emerged clothed from the lake after a swim and made Lyme one of TV’s most iconic backdrops.
