Take a trip through the Historical Garden of Surprises, Contemplate the Contemporary Sculpture Garden, or follow the Gruesomely Grubby Gardens tour...
A 300-acre deer park set in the grounds of Burghley House awaits your exploration, whilst the lush gardens -landscaped by ‘Capability’ Brown- include his signature lake and avenues of mature trees. The Historical Garden of Surprises is just that – hidden from the outside it features obelisks, statues, flowing water and fountains where visitors of all ages are encouraged to take a paddle on a warm day. The Contemporary Sculpture Garden, opened in 1994 is dedicated to exhibiting innovative sculptures. Children can explore the garden, discover insects and solve puzzles with the Gruesomely Grubby Gardens tour, making this a fresh, fun, educational day out for all garden lovers.
