Just a walk in the Park

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

Burghley has to be one of the most perfect places to take the family or oneself for a beautiful walk, historical top up on England's past history or simply a place to take a picnic. Entrance to the park is free which must be unusual these days for places of historical interest although you will need to purchase a ticket... More

This is a great place to have right on our doorstep. Regularly bring the children here with their bikes, footballs etc. Plenty of room to run about, good facilities and it's free to park! Garden of surprises and sculpture garden great also (not free!).
