Discover England's grandest Elizabethan house and treasure trove of world-class art
Discover England's grandest Elizabethan house and a treasure trove of world-class art. Include a tour of Burghley on a private tour of England.
Burghley House is, without a doubt, the most impressive house of the period. It is not only the stunning exterior with a multitude of magnificent chimney stacks and decorated parapets. It is also the treasures within. Burghley contains one of the most awe-inspiring art collections in the world, with over 700 paintings.
England once boasted over 3,000 deer parks, an absolute must of any great estate. There are now just several hundred. At Burghley, deer wander around grounds laid out by the master landscaper, Lancelot' Capability' Brown. Enjoy the Garden Café, various annual events and the golf course.
Unravel another chapter of Britain's fascinating history. Tour Burghley House; built by William Cecil, Queen Elizabeth I's private secretary and closest adviser. While touring this region of England, visit Hatfield House or Woburn Abbey.
Today this magnificent 10,000-acre estate is managed very carefully by The Burghley House Preservation Trust.
