Stroll from Stamford through the park to Burghley House - a fantastic building. Either visit the house or be content to wander around it and its stables and court yards and maybe visit the excellent café for tea in its beautiful garden. The house is not much more than a mile from the middle of Stamford. very pleasant way to... More

A friend and I visited Burghley Park and House at the weekend and had a brilliant time. I'm local to Stamford but was yet to visit Burghley gardens and we were surprised at how much they had to offer. The Garden of Surprises was wonderful, suitable for all ages, it was interactive and visually pleasing. The sculpture garden was huge!... More

With a well curated Garden of Statues and an amusing Garden of Surprises. i enjoyed the latter like a kid. The house itself is rich in history worth visiting.

Lovely venue but very expensive for family. It costs lots to do the water park or see the house and sculpture park. Staff not as friendly as you would think. At the Christmas fair, no thought went into family's with prams trying to see stands, it was way to busy and not pleasant! Families were not welcome.

Great place for a leisurely stroll on a spring morning. The house itself creates the perfect centre point, while the grounds offer so many stunning views, plus the opportunity to see the park deer very closely

A day well spent exploring this magnificent house and gardens. Walking through the grounds up to the Lion Bridge is a must as the views of the house from there are breath taking. Also worth seeing is the garden of surprises - there is much to intrigue and delight young and old alike. Well worth a visit.

We took a walk in the park during a first weekend visit to Stamford, recommended by our accommodation providers - in Aunby - and very pleased we did. The park is wonderfully open, clearly well maintained, marvellous old trees and good to see evidence of plenty of new ones being planted. def recommend

Burghley house is definitely worth a visit. Its a gorgeous looking property and there are numerous areas to look and see. There are the gardens of surprise, the sculpture park, the house and of course the main gardens with deer park. The only downside is it is very expensive to access most areas, the only part of the house which... More

We popped in for a look around the house as it was opening weekend of the new Season & despite having been coming for years, Burghley never fails to wow me. The room access is even better, we can now walk all round the Billiard table & get a view over the front circle driveway. The great dining room has... More
