Nice house but expensive cafe. There is a large area to walk alone or with a dog. When they have events on it can be expensive but also pretty unique

Visited again last week. The estate is a lovely place to visit, the trees were all in their autumn colours and the deer were roaming freely.. Parking is free and there are plenty of spaces. We usually park up, walk through the estate and then into Stamford for lunch and browsing the town.

Visited the house but seduced by this park - wide open spaces with lovely lake and many English oaks sneak other native tree. Deer were very active and fun to watch.

We visit Burghley Park frequently and are so impressed by the family's willingness to share their magnificent estate with everyone. Parking is free and you can take your own picnic & experience the parklands, or like us enjoy the wonderful Orangery tea rooms.

It is a place to wonder for a whole day if you so wish. The overall expanse of trees and the recent investigation to follow the careful planned walks, lined with trees, allowing for different vistas and visual surprises, makes the visit an absolute must for whoever comes to Stamford.

Free parking, well sign posted from the A1, toilets up near the house and gift shop, you can also go in the house, but we was walking the dog, dogs have to be kept on the lead due to wildlife, great ground to walk through and some amazing views,

When in Stamford we always find time for a stroll in the park. Lovely trees & open spaces - lots of deer - and free entry and parking - you must try it.
