COVID-19 (Coronavirus) Update

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.

The Gardens are currently closed along with Government guidance concerning ticketed outdoor venues. This will be kept under constant review with the prospect of opening the gardens later in the summer.

The parkland will remain open daily from 7am to 6pm, free of charge. All other facilities including the Orangery Restaurant, Garden Café, Gift Shop, Garden Shop and toilets remain 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. Thank you for your understanding at this difficult time.
