It is with enormous regret that as a result of the Covid-19 outbreak, we have taken the difficult decision not to reopen the House to visitors this year. This is because of the relatively small size of some rooms, narrow routes and physical restrictions on two-way access, meaning that appropriate measures to observe social distancing are not possible.
This conclusion was not reached without careful discussion and consideration of all the challenges that we would face in complying with current guidelines. At the end of the day, a visit to Burghley is meant to be enjoyable and we do not feel that we can offer our visitors a high-quality experience.
The Gardens are open with pre-booking essential to keep our visitors and staff safe. Please look at our visiting page for more information about how to visit.
The parkland will remain open daily from 7am to 6pm, free of charge.
The Garden Shed is open providing hot and cold drinks, ice creams and cakes. You are welcome to picnic in the Park but please take your litter to the nearest bin.
The toilets near the gardens are open and we ask that you adhere to social distancing and the guidance of our staff as you use these. They will be regularly cleaned and maintained by our team.
The Orangery Restaurant, Garden Café, Gift Shop, Garden Shop are closed.
We hope our visitors to Burghley will be able to enjoy the great pleasures which the Park has to offer at this time of year. Together, we want to support our local community as much as we possibly can and hope that you will find some comfort here with your families. We do however ask all visitors to observe Government guidelines regarding social distancing and keep dogs on leads at all times.
The Burghley Park Golf Course has re-opened for members only to use under the new Government guidelines for exercise and sport. Only the Course will be open, with the Club House and all other facilities remaining shut
Thank you for your understanding at this difficult time.
The safety of our visitors and staff remain our priority as we constantly monitor and review government guidelines. Thank you for your understanding.
