Lovely place to visit with all it's history - also plenty of guides to help with information. Not so good..... the grounds are very limited to the public even though you pay an extra 1 pound for entry. The formal grounds are for the use of the Burghley family only so you really don't see the beauty. Only some silly... More

Loved the tour, the sculpture park was amazing and had a lovely lunch in the Orangery. Would recommend to anyone - easy to find, reasonable for a full day out and lots of fun for all ages

This is a review of Burghley Park, rather than the house and gardens, which we have promised ourselves we will visit another day when we can get up to Lincolnshire again! For the first time in its history, the RREC (Rolls-Royce and Bentley Enthusiasts' Club) held its annual rally and concours in the park at Burghley and, with such a... More

We loved Burghley Park. Beautiful gardens with a great water and sculpture garden. Good for visiting with children.

The house is very grand, with about 18 rooms open to visitors. If you like murals, ceiling art and paintings then you'll love Burghley. I am a stately home fan, but have to say it was a bit too grand for me. However, I'm glad that we visited. The gardens are fab however - the Garden of Surprises has lots... More

Perfect place - amazing house and grounds. Very organised parking - even after an event. Friendly staff. Certainly worth multiple visits.

We visited the park after eating lunch at a nearby pub. ( the house and restaurant were closed on Fridays) We had a wander around the lovely grounds, garden centre, water features and saw the deer and had an ice cream. Also had a browse around the lovely Burghley House Shop. All in all a very pleasant afternoon.

Was lovely to walk around, stunning English countryside with deers roaming around. Nice little shops to browse around and cafes with seating areas. Very pleasant. Nothing to dislike about it.

We spent a lovely day at Burghley House and Gardens, both well worht the admission. The Elizabethan house was adorned with murals and treasures, each room steeped in opulent fabrics. We were amazed by the collection of 300 year old fine Japanese porcelain and the impressive architechture. The Gardens were fabulous, reminding us of Alnwick Garden. We enjoyed the Garden... More
