The Burghley Experience self-guided Gardens visit – £10.00 per person
Enjoy the playful nature of the Garden of Surprises, based on William Cecil’s lost trick garden at his Hertfordshire home, Theobalds. With swiveling Caesar busts, basins of water, jets and the mirrored maze, these gardens have been designed to be accessible to all regardless of age or interest and are particularly enjoyable for the young and young at heart. The Contemporary Sculpture Garden mixes contemporary sculpture in an historic setting. Bark and mown pathways lead you around the Sculpture Garden where you pass many different species of tree and enjoy a beautiful view of the artificial lake created by ‘Capability’ Brown in the 1770’s.
