Great place

Fabulous park with lots of walks and photo opportunities. Deer park is gorgeous and at the correct time of year they come right up to the house.

Took my children to the "Gardens of surprise". It was ok for my 4 year old, but my 6 and 7 year old were quickly bored. They are not allowed to climb anything at Burghley no trees, no sculptures, which I can understand, but makes it a bit of a boring walk round looking at statues all the way for... More

Stunning place to visit. Be sure to allow sufficient time. Take a picnic if the weather is good and share it in the park.

My husband and I visited yesterday in which was an extremely hot day to visit both the garden of surprises and the garden of sculptures. Firstly, I'd like to say it's so pleasant to visit a house where there are no parking fees as families can have a picnic in the grounds, walk around the deer park and have use... More

Burghley Park is lovely no matter what the weather. The Deer frolicking in the park is a sight to see

Burghley Park is a lovely place for a walk, lots of places to explore with great views of the magnificent house. The park is free to walk around, which is a bonus, and the coffee shops are amazing. The garden of surprises is also worth a visit but you have to pay to enter.

Be aware Burghley park is closed to the public until after the horse trials in September due to health&safety concerns

What a great place for a family day out. Lots to see and do, plenty of parking and grounds to walk around before going into the hall.

We had a great time exploring the garden and the sculptures but disappointed that they closed at 5pm. Great for all ages, lots of photography opportunities and plenty of fun. Next time we will allow a full day to explore the house and grounds fully. We were disappointed with the little cafe, the cakes were not all covered on the... More

Took the grandchildren to the Gardens of Surprise/Sculpture garden and they had a fabulous time. Great fun from start to finish. Some days there is also an activity/craft room which they also loved. There is a cafe but there are picnic tables in the sculpture garden. A real adventure for youngsters in the school holidays.
