The Burghley Experience self-guided Gardens visit – £10.00 per person

Enjoy the playful nature of the Garden of Surprises, based on William Cecil’s lost trick garden at his Hertfordshire home, Theobalds. With swiveling Caesar busts, basins of water, jets and the mirrored maze, these gardens have been designed to be accessible to all. Meanwhile the tranquil Sculpture Garden blends contemporary sculpture within beautifully diverse plantings. Hidden pathways lead you through the Garden to enjoy the view of the stunning 28 acre lake created by ‘Capability’ Brown in the 1770s. (Minimum group number: 20 guests).
