This is the place to be for a walk! The sculpture gardens , the lake, The Princess Diana memorial, or just a picnic spend time here, have lunch in the Orangery, and a look around the gift shop. What more do you want?

We don't live far from the estate, so walk the dog there a lot. The actual park is nice but it's no adventure playground. No play facilities for children, and you have to pay for gardens of surprise. The park itself is free to enter. I've never been in the house but the Orangery cafe is OK - don't expect... More

Beautiful place to spend the whole day,a visit to the house is most interesting and after that either coffee in the orangree or lunch depending on the time,but we always take a picnic if the weather is good, Then there are the sculpture gardens which is a lovely peaceful place to wander round,but if you take the children then it's...

I took my dog here for a walk the week before Christmas and enjoyed the wide area of fields and beautiful scenery that is easily accessible with parking and paths to walk along so there is no need for wellies or walking boots. We walked for about an hour but could have extended it if we wanted to go into... More

We are local to the area and we always love going to Burghley for a stroll around the park but I never thought about doing a trip advisor review to encourage other visitors. I would highly recommend Burghley park to anyone who wants to go out and get a bit of fresh area, the grounds are vast and their are... More

Regularly take long relaxing walks in the grounds when staying at the nearby William Cecil Hotel, great free access to all areas and as mentioned elsewhere, free parking and tarmac paths if you want to stay mud free in winter. The walks around the park give stunning views of the house, and great to see the deer wandering about.

A great facility for local people and for families, how lucky are we to have this on our doorstep.Beautiful in all seasons, paths allow for mud limited winter treks, whilst you are still free to 'run on the grass' if that takes you fancy. Note there is no admission charge to enjoy these beautiful grounds, unlike other houses and parks... More

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.
