Finally got to Newstead Abbey and like the Air and Railway Museums it is another gem of a place to visit. The Abbey is the home of the Byrons ie Lord Byron the romantic poet and part of the in crowd with Mary Shelly of Frankenstein fame. The house itself has much original decoration and furniture still inside that dates back to Byron and the guide tour was worth the money, especially given the guide was very easy to listen too. Aside from the house the main reason to go to the Abbey is the gardens. Given that it was an overcast autumn day they perhaps weren't looking their best but even so it was great walking around them and seeing how varied a garden could be. Everything from large ponds to knot gardens.
