At Burghley, we have two Stannah stairlifts, making the Orangery Restaurant and Burghley House state rooms accessible to wheelchair users. Wheelchair users must be able to transfer themselves from a wheelchair to the stairlift and back again unaided. Our Porter on duty (or stairlift trained member of the Burghley team) will be available on your visit to operate the stairlift.
We do not allow mobility scooters in the state rooms. Our state rooms are located on the first floor and we have no means of getting scooters upstairs. However, we have a number of manual wheelchairs available for visitors to use during their visit to the House & Gardens. These are available on a first come, first served basis but it is very rare that one will not be available on arrival.
The Gardens are mostly accessible to wheelchair users but please be aware that in the Sculpture Garden, the paths are gravel and some open areas of the Gardens are very uneven without pathways.
Both our Courtyard & Garden Shops have ramp access available. The Garden Café is on the ground floor.
parking is available nearby the House & Gardens entrance points and clearly signposted as you drive through main visitor entrance on arrival.
Disabled toilet facilities are available in the Chestnut Courtyard, close to the House entrance and nearby the Gardens entrance.
Our Porters and Duty Managers are always available during visiting hours and there to assist with any queries or concerns you may have during your visit.
