The House and grounds are stunning, if you like going to National Trust houses then you have to go to this house - It is so much better! A super day out

The outside is just stuinning, almost fairy-story like. The tour round the house is very interesting, especially the link to the Olympics. Lots of interesting rooms and lovely views.

You even felt the angels and horsemen were painted in 3-D relief. Quite extraordinary. The gardens were beautiful and the woodland trails and outdoor sculptures superb. And... More

Lots of nice Christmas gifts, and I spent some time in Burghley House's shop, which has a fantastic range of quite reasonably priced items.... More
