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.

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

I've visited Burghley Park several times in all sorts of weather and have always enjoyed it. I've been into the house once and found it very interesting. The grounds are beautiful, and it's great to be able to walk so close to the deer herd that they have in residence.

Morning time is best! I was recommended this as a historic cultural main sight in Stamford and surrounding areas, and indeed the grounds are beautiful. Approaching the house itself one is left wondering what Cromwell must have thought about it as he came upon seizing it in the 1600s. Its grand and gothic like. The sculpture park which I think...

We visit Burghley on a regular basis. I think we are so lucky to have this on our doorstep. It is free to park and free to walk around the main park. I take my dog for lovely walks and always find everyone very friendly. Great for a picnic. Great for doggie walks. Great for children. Expensive if you want... More
