We have visited Burghley Park and the house several times before. This weekend we took friends to the Battle Proms. An excellent informal evening out of stirring and patriotic music and sing along for an excellent cause. Take a picnic, chairs, Union Jacks, fizz & sunshine and enjoy an evening to remember in the splendid grounds of Burghley Park. The... More

Friends & I took a gazebo, chairs, table, & as much food & drink we could carry. We were there for the UB40 concert in the park, it was set in front of the house but unfortunately there was scaffolding around it, so never got to see it in all its glory maybe next time. I did get a lovely... More

The deer park and gardens were famously designed by Lancelot 'Capability' Brown, and have been subject to hardly any alteration since. Therefore this is a 'must see' for any student of landscape design. But here is the genius of Brown, for the park is a delight to walk through,for the sheer magnificence of the trees and plants, but then, as... More

Huge, lovely park. Great place to walk around. Deer to see. Picnics to be had. Lots of events including concerts and horse trials. The park itself is a great place to spend some time but there are so many other things to do as well. See my Burghley House review.

Best known for the horse trials Burghley House is also a superb place to while away a quiet weekend afternoon. The gardens are well maintained and the restaurants serve very good food.

Loved the grounds, the sculptures, gardens and the restaurant. The house was grand as you would expect however, you do not see as much as we had anticipated though what we did see was excellent.

House very interesting (and plenty of it!) - do use the audio guide, and take the headphones option as it took us 2 hours to look round and necks were cricked from holding it like a phone. Restaurant very good - not cheap. Sculpture garden and garden of surprises were both worth a visit.

Wanting to fill an hour en route to Luton airport for a returning American guest, we chose Burghley Park. On approach we realised there was a Game Fair on and feared the traffic. No problem! And they manage the parking very well, so no delays. Then a super but quick walk around the front of the house and the side... More
