Burghley reopens March 29

While the House itself will not re-open until May 19, Covid restrictions permitting, the spectacular gardens are set to welcome visitors for pre-booked visits from March 29.

As restrictions are eased, Burghley’s three gardens will re-open with Covid measures in place, including timed tickets to ensure social distancing.

Offering a chance to enjoy the ‘Great Outdoors’ with the magnificent House as a spectacular backdrop, a pre-booked Gardens ticket will give access to the Garden of Surprises and Sculpture Garden, and until 11th April the South Gardens, for its spectacular display of spring bulbs.

For most of the year the South Gardens – with 19th century yew hedges and restored fountains – can only be viewed from the windows of the State Rooms above, but they open up annually for visitors to enjoy spring colours, including magnificent narcissi displays, plus views of both the Lion Bridge and south front of the House.

Garden tickets – £13.50 adults, £9.50 child, and £44 for a family of up to five – must be pre-booked. For full details see www.burghley.co.uk
