Booking your time slot ticket and purchasing House & Gardens tickets

To visit the House & Gardens, you will need the following:

  • Book a time slot ticket. These are 30-minute timed arrival sessions. You may not enter the House before the beginning of your timed session. You are welcome to visit the Gardens on the same day as your House timed ticket slot, either before or after your House Visit but please note the Gardens are closed between 1 and 2pm.
  • Purchase a House & Gardens ticket. Your ticket is valid for 365 days from the date of purchase, allowing you to visit Burghley House & Gardens as many times as you like from the date of purchase.
  • For our Friends of Burghley and Historic House members, all you need to do is book a time slot ticket prior to your visit. (Historic House members, please bring your HH Card).
Time slots are released weekly on Monday mornings for the following 2 weeks in advance. Time slots are free of charge to book.

If you have booked a House time slot and wish to visit the Gardens before or after on the same day, you do not need to book a Gardens time slot.
