I have visited Burghley house 3 times and it gets better every time. The kitchen (with its amazing painting!) sets you in the right mood, and the sequence of state rooms are particularly interesting. You need to look closely at the paintings as they are...More

Absolutely beautiful property in immaculate condition set in lovely spacious park gardens. The orangery cafe had a good selection of tea and cakes with a lovely view of the more formal gardens and is worth eating in. Would probably be worth taking a bike or...More

I've been to many stately homes but this has to be up there in the top 3. The house is beautiful with some of the best murals I've seen. I particularly loved the hell staircase. The grounds are extensive and my kids loved the surprise...More

Having visited another of the Treasure Houses of England in April (Hatfield), we were entitled to a 'BOGOF' entry to Burghley, which mitigated the rather steep fee of £18, so we really felt we had a bargain! That said, there is so much to see...More

My husband and I visited the House and Gardens on Saturday. It is a beautiful place to see and visit. Really enjoyed the garden sculptures. My only complaint is the café charged high prices and provided food on paper plates and drinks in paper cups.

What a totally beautiful house with so much history. It cost £18 to get in, which I found a fair price, especially as you can return within a year for free, so I will definitely be going back even though I am not local.

This remarkable house has many fine and historic features. It requires a lot of walking and looking up at stunning ceilings and superb tapestries. The visit starts in a modern way with an audio display full of information. Sadly there is nowhere to sit to...More

I don't know about the garden but the parking is in the parkland just by the house and people often picnic there, but watch out for the deer!
