Retail therapy and leisurely lunches
Eating and shopping at Burghley is a real pleasure, whether you’re looking for something to take home to remind you of your visit, a full Sunday lunch with friends, an interesting gift for someone or just a cup of coffee in a beautiful rose garden.

The Garden Cafe
A quick cup of coffee and snack in the sunshine, or a warming bowl of soup in the winter, the Garden Cafe offers an alternative from the more formal Orangery Restaurant.
The Courtyard Shop
Shopping in a relaxed environment. The Courtyard Shop, situated within Chestnut Courtyard, offers an extensive range of fine foods and chocolate, lifestyle goods and accessories as well as jewellery and toiletries.
There is always something for everyone with some of the gifts inspired by Burghley. We also offer an extensive range of books which include titles on the Cecil family and Burghley House as well as postcards, stationery, clothes and toys.
You are welcome to come and shop without purchasing a house ticket and parking is free, so why not come up to Burghley to shop for gifts in a relaxed environment without the bustle of town!
The Garden Shop
Plants, gardening and souvenirs. The Garden Shop, located at the entrance of the Garden of Surprises, stocks a superb range of high quality plant, pretty garden related accessories and books as well as a wide range of souvenirs and gifts, designed to appeal to our younger visitors with games, toys and books as well as many smaller ‘pocket money’ items.
