The Park is an integral part of Burghley House but if stately homes are not for you there is so much to see in the park that you can leave others to view the House and just spend hours wandering round the grounds because there is so much to see. Of course, the Orangery is a must with its wonderful... More

This review is for the Garden of surprises and the Sculpture garden only and not the park as a whole. The garden of surprises is a fun place for children and children at heart and I thoroughly enjoyed walking around and seeing all the different water features as well as the sun dial and the maze. The sculpture garden however... More

Only had a couple of hours in the grounds, but we will definitely come back to look round the house and explore in more detail. What a wonderful place and to have so much parkland, which is open for everyone. We also went to the tea room for a coffee and was able to sit out on the terrace. Very... More

The walk through the deer park of Burghley is like going back in time. Majestic avenues of lime trees, fallow deer feeding on the lush grass, a group of male deer lying under the shade of a tree. The wonderful planting of Capability Brown and acres of peaceful walks. This is truly a haven of peace and beauty. We walk... More

Burghley Park and House is a fascinating place to visit maybe a little pricey to get in but you have a tour guide with you who tells you alot about the history of the house and the family that still lives there. If you are an Art lover (which I am) you will love the Art within Burghley House it... More

We arrived at 6:30pm and unfortunately couldn't get a space to sit inside the white flags which meant the music was not very loud and clear. Such a shame. We were on top of the slope a few people back which meant we couldn't see the orchestra either. This meant the evening was not nearly as good as expected.

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
