Discover More About Burghley House
Burghley House is a fantastic Grade 1 listed building surrounded by beautifully maintained gardens and incredible landscapes. The house was constructed on the site of an ancient village, which was abandoned in the area long before the house was built.
The exterior of the building is almost unchanged since its initial construction 1587, though many of the interiors of the building have been modified over the years, with ages of the interior varying between around 1800 and the present day.
The chief landscaper of the gardens was the renowned Capability Brown, who is famed for designing the biggest and best gardens of the era. The avenues and plants in the maintained gardens are all down to his careful planning, and the lake was created by him too.
The parkland is left mostly to natures discretion, with wild deer and other animals keeping the grass in check and the woodland healthy.
