First surprise is parkland access is Free! Massive grounds to stroll, jog, picnic , spot deer, watch local cricket match or just relax. Do also visit Garden of Surprises (adult £8.50, child £5.50, family £26). Fantastic sculptures, water features and historic ice house. Don't be surprised by total change in tranquility during Burghley Horse Trials. Parkland is packed with competitors,... More

We had an excellent walk around the grounds. We were lucky with a beautifully sunny day. We listened to the birdsong in the courtyard behind the shop which was heavenly. The shop was interesting and well stocked. The café has indoor and outdoor seating and serves a good cup of coffee. There are plants for sale in a second shop.

Garden of secrets is great for children , bring plenty changes of clothing, ours had super fun in the water, then lunch in the sculpture garden, fantastic, well worth a visit. Grounds are vast and great for picnic and games, other things you pay for.

The whole estate is a serene pleasure. It is easy to get about even with a wheelchair. It is vast so one does not encounter many people.Most probably spend time. In the house. We always lunch there or have a coffee

Lovely to visit the Park for a Sunday morning stroll. I understand that it is open for free to visitors, which makes it a much appreciated amenity for local people.

This is one of my favourite places ever and you don't even have to spend a penny. Often a favourite for a small picnic and then a stroll in the park grounds. It feels like your in a completely different place and is perfect when you want a change of scenery. This is all with the back drop of the... More

Such a lovely estate to visit & it is free of charge to enter unless you wish to visit the house or gardens. Always good to visit at different times of the year, Autumn especially when the deer are about and the leaves are falling.

We recently went to an event, The Battle Proms, at Burghley Park.. The park is ideal for events such as this with its large expanse of open grassland. Access to the park is very easy with its many entrances. The staff are very professional in controlling traffic for parking. For major events as the Proms, Burghley House makes an ideal... More

Excellent park particularly on event days, see the website for details. We went on Aston Martin day which was free and a brilliant event. This is probably best known for the horse riding events sponsored by Land Rover.

Burghley Park is wonderful to walk in - wide open spaces for the children to play and it is maintained perfectly. Car parking and entry to the park are free. Views of the hourse are wonderful. We ate lunch in the garden cafe near to the garden of surprises - it was good but quite expensive considering the food and... More
