England’s Greatest Elizabethan House. Home to William Cecil, Lord High Treasurer and Chief Minister to Queen Elizabeth I, Burghley is a true treasure house. So much more than a building, Burghley offers a unique glimpse in to the way great houses have been lived in from the time of Queen Elizabeth I to the present day. The Historical Garden of Surprises is a fantastic addition to Burghley and was inspired by William Cecil's lost Elizabethan garden, it now waits to reveal surprises to those who enter. With over 450 years of family history and fabulous places to eat and shop Burghley is one not to be missed!
