Burghley park, house, sculpture gardens and the garden of surprises are all awesome, a real gem of Stamford, no other town close by can boast such an asset, let's be proud of it! Great place. Carl Emma Steele, Stamford.

How many visitors know of this magical place.....the sculpture park at Burghley? An area of the park surrounding a lake next to the house. It has a collection of work by sculptors... renewed every year... new and interesting pieces quietly emerging from this very green and verdant paradise. A couple sat on a bench looking out over the lake drinking... More

the house is lovely, as are the outdoor areas. very expensive to get in though. The guides were helpful and knowledgable, but some could be a little smarter, I was surprised they weren't in uniform or black and white.

My wife and I called at Burghley House 12 years ago but it was late in the year and closed to the public. It was worth the wait! The house is magnificent with a fascinating history. The gardens are lovely with unusual features such as a sculpture garden, obelisk garden and several others: quirky and entertaining.

Well- just the same old stately home stuff- limited number of rooms and a lack of information unless you buy the £5 guide book which seems a bit steep after having to pay £14.50 each to enter. No formal gardens which was also rather disappointing and not a great cafe either. Just OK
