Burghley House

Burghley House was built between 1565 and 1587 by William Cecil, Lord High Treasurer to Queen Elizabeth I. Eighteen state rooms are opened to the public, full of national treasures including fine paintings, porcelain and furniture.

The house is the largest surviving Elizabethan house in England and remains a family home for Cecil's descendants. Visitors can also enjoy the Capability Brown landscaped gardens and a sculpture garden, while the Orangery serves tea and cakes.

The house is full of treasures, including paintings by Gentileschi and fine art acquired on Grand Tours in the 17th century. The Verrio Heaven and Hell rooms are particularly spectacular, with walls and ceilings painted with celestial scenes of gods in the Heaven Room and a terrifying vision of Hell over the main staircase of the house. br>
Large in scale and immense in its intricacies, guided tours are available to illuminate the history of this fascinating residence.
