Beautiful Elizabethan house. Go for the guided tour. What the guides do not know is not worth knowing and they are more than happy to answer any questions you may have. Beautifully restored and work still continuing. There is also the parkland around the house and the Garden of Surprises which is great fun for children on a warm sunny day. You can picnic or choose from the cafe or Orangery restaurant for eating.

What NOT to like would be easier to answer for the place is a wonderful treasure trove with amzing ceilings rich in allegory and there are fine paintings We went three times in 2011 there was so much to see. .

We had an amazing trip to Burghley. The house and grounds were stunning. The interiors and contents are spectacular. The sculpture garden and garden of surprises is fun too. Really enjoyed the day out. Restaurant served very nice selection, especially the cakes! .
Overall I highly recommend it!
