Christmas at Burghley House

Christmas will be bigger than ever at England’s greatest Elizabethan house, featuring a free craft market with more stalls, seasonal shopping and festive carols set amidst historic grandeur.

Christmas menus at The Orangery restaurant - housed in a building that provided space for the family’s love of horticulture and designed by Capability Brown – will be on offer from 1 November - 17 December.

Burghley, on the edge of the Georgian stone town of Stamford, also offers a chance to get into the festive spirit with Christmas concerts set amidst historic splendour on a grand scale. There’s the traditional Christmas Chapel Concert, performed in the intimate setting of the family Chapel, which was renovated by Capability Brown, including mince pies and mulled wine (10th December, £25). Or for a seasonal treat, enjoy Christmas Carols in the Great Hall in the magnificent oak-panelled hall, which has changed little since Queen Victoria and Prince Albert dined there in 1844 (13th December, £20 adults, £10 child, including pre-drink in the Orangery). And while the house may be closed for winter,

Burghley’s parkland, with its resident herd of deer, remains open with free entry right through the year - perfect for winter walks or a chance to blow away the Christmas cobwebs.

What do you think of this? Are you visiting Burghley House this Christmas?
