This house is amazing. Also recommend having a walk around the external grounds - dogs need to be kept on leads as deer roam the area most of the year. The Burghley horse trials held every year in September is worth booking - whilst the Horses are beautiful but there is many traders, for the shopaholics out there.

Beautiful room, fascinating tapestries and decoration, and wonderful grounds to explore. We come here most weekends to walk our dog around the grounds whilst we admire the view of the house. But inside of the house meets every expectation. It's absolutely breathtaking. Definitely worth a visit if you're in the area.

A great spot on a Sunday morning to stretch your legs with kiddies. Plenty of people about walking, scooting and cycling

we took our teenage daughters for a look around. They were not really very interested in the interior, they are at that in between age when they are too old to beb wowed and too young to appreciate it. We enjoyed the look around though, and it has some lovely rooms. The exterior is lovely, perfect for visiting on a... More

Burghley house is a beautiful experience! The grounds of this estate are beautiful with wild deers, rivers and open spaces there is plenty to do! We went with a large group and took our dogs, everyone is so pleasant and it's a really nice walk or day out! We will go frequently and highly recommend this to anyone!

Love coming here! It's such a popular place but it's so nice to walk round such beautiful grounds and blow the cobwebs away. Free parking too...woohoo! The sculpture gardens are always lovely to walk round as they change each year and the fun of the water gardens never get old. Looking forward to coming back in spring!

My boyfriend and I went to one of the Spooky Tours at Burghley House near Halloween this year and we've been talking about it ever since. It is *not* appropriate for small children, it really is very scary, but it is absolutely hilarious at the same time. The whole group of us were screaming and then laughing all the way... More

Visited Burghley for the Christmas Fayre in November, very busy but lots of lovely ideas. Food area was very good a few stalls had samples before you bought anything, which helps with your purchases.

We visited here with family and expected it to be quite similar to other country houses / national-trust style properties, but this exceeded all expectations. We started with a tour of the house and were really impressed, the guides in each of the rooms brought the place to life and shared so many interesting stories with us - they really... More
