Burghley House and Gardens

This weekend, Saturday 18 March 2023, Burghley House and Gardens will be reopening to the public. 

Burghley is one of the largest and grandest surviving houses of the sixteenth century and a magnificent example of the great Elizabethan 'prodigy' houses. 

Conceived by William Cecil, Lord High Treasurer to Queen Elizabeth I, between 1555 and 1587, Burghley is a testament to the ambition and vision of the most powerful courtier of the first Elizabethan age.

Since then, the gardens and house have seen multiple generations, each adding their own stamp to the iconic stately home.

Visitors can enjoy the estate and gardens from 18 March and can book tickets and plan their visit online.
