South Gardens Summer Opening

Experience the South Gardens in the height of their summer beauty

Come and enjoy the glorious floral displays in Burghley's South Gardens home to an extensive collection of roses, colourful herbaceous borders and beautiful wildflowers which give an injection of formality into ‘Capability’ Brown’s sweeping vistas.

Only open for a handful of weeks each year, don't miss this opportunity to explore the 28-acre private South Gardens, designed by ‘Capability’ Brown in the 18th Century and witness truly wonderful views of the lake, Lion Bridge and the park beyond. Discover the Summer House designed by Brown overlooking the lake, the oak circle and take in the swathes of summer blooms.

Open daily, 10am - 5pm, from 1 to 7 July 2024.

Admission to the South Gardens is included free of charge with a valid House & Gardens or Gardens Only ticket.
