In early summer the roses in Burghley’s picturesque South Gardens are in full bloom offering glorious displays of colour and wonderful fragrances. Join Burghley Head Gardener, Joe Whitehead, for an unmissable afternoon appreciating the beauty of our most popular and diverse garden plant. Not usually accessible to visitors, the South Gardens will be exclusively for these two dates in July, offering a rare opportunity to explore the beautiful twenty-eight acre private gardens.
