You can park here for free and enjoy the parkland and then walk through the park into Stamford. It’s a lovely, easy flat walk about a mile and a half long into the town. We didn’t go into the house and formal gardens as I...More
Personally I thought that Burghley House is the best country house that I've visited in many a long day. Stunning ceilings.. interesting gardens .. tickets valid for a whole year. Give it a miss for horse trials unless you love horse's !
Grand privately owned stately home. About half an hour's walk from Stamford station or large car park. Good introductory AV and then decent number of rooms to see. Wonderful art collection and interiors. Very friendly and knowledgeable guides. Some places to sit whilst on the...More
Told this was a must see house and I have to agree. Stunning. The history, the rooms, everything really. The gardens were a slight disappointment, more a park. The sculptures made the garden walk interesting. The Garden of Surprises was enjoyable. If you have children...More

Burghley House is a must see if you’re in Stamford. It has a lovely feel, almost homely for a house this size and the guides are a hoot. They are so knowledgeable but humerus too and can regale many a tale.

Wouldn't it be helpful to receive an answer from Burghley House management. So far, the issue has been fudged. If the main attractions - The Tower of London, Kensington Palace, Chatsworth, Blenheim and others can make full provision for disabled access then so can Burghley. The 'Elizabethan' argument is eroneous as he vast majority of the building is 19th century, so heritage restrictions do't apply.
