Burghley House

Burghley House


You cannot visit Burghley without experiencing a feeling of awe – for this is the very largest and grandest of houses of the first Elizabethan Age — featuring glorious treasures – paintings, antiques, tapestries, furnishings, wood carvings, porcelain, sculptures and more.

Burghley has been the home of the Cecil family for over four hundred years. The house was built between 1565 and 1587 by William Cecil, Lord High Treasurer to Queen Elizabeth I. The house remains a family home for his descendants and is presently occupied by Lady Victoria Leatham and her family.
