Burghley House announces reopening plans Posted On 19 March 2021

The house will remain closed, however, three gardens are due to reopen this month…


Pre-booked garden tickets will give visitors limited access to the Garden of Surprises and full access to the Sculpture Garden, where new areas of planting and new sculptures have been introduced.

The South Gardens, designed by ‘Capability’ Brown in 1757, will also be open, but only between March 29 and April 11.

Visits to the house itself, which was recently used to film interior scenes in Netflix drama The Crown, will be on hold until at least mid-May, when further Covid-19 restrictions are lifted. The shop and the orangery restaurant will also remain closed until further lockdown easing occurs. The Shed takeaway, however, will be open for food and drink from March 29.

The gardens will be open every day in two separate sessions. The morning session will run from 10.30am until 1pm, while the afternoon session is between 2pm and 4.30pm.

Adult tickets cost £13.50, tickets for children between 3 and 15 cost £9.50 and family tickets for two adults and three children are £44.00. Tickets must be purchased in advance of visiting.

Burghley House tickets are valid for 365 days, meaning visitors are welcome to return as many times as they wish during normal opening times.
