Burghley House

Stamford, Lincolnshire, PE9 3JY

Should you be fortunate enough to be sitting on the sweeping lawns of Burghley House, the spires of Stamford in the distance and the glorious 16th century building behind you, you would truly appreciate how bygone landscape gardeners, architects and the myriad workmen at their disposal were able to create such a masterpiece. Burghley from the outside is magnificent, but wait until you get inside. Remodelled in the late 17th century, it houses a wonderful Italian painting collection, early Chinese and Japanese ceramics, Grinling Gibbon’s wood carvings, superb English and continental furniture and some very important tapestries - and that’s just for starters. Even if looking at antique treasures isn’t your thing, take the dog for a stroll in Capability Brown’s lush 300-acre parkland or simply take a picnic and watch the deers while eating your sandwiches. The parkland is free entry.
