Burghley House is an easy 20 minute drive from Peterborough. There is no public transport near the house – the closest is Stamford – so a car is the most convenient way to reach the site.
Designed by William Cecil, Lord High Treasurer to Queen Elizabeth I, this 16th century mansion was one of the grandest houses of the Elizabethan age.
There are 35 major rooms just on the ground floor and historic parklands occupied by a herd of deer. Burghley is also home to a vast collection of fine art, from Oriental to European pieces.
Look out for the different markets and festivals that take place on the estate throughout the year.
