Burghley House has been the ancestral home of the Burghley Family since 1587, when this large and grand Elizabethan house was completed for William Cecil, later Baron Burghley. The house is a splendid example of 16th-century English architecture but also features a suite of rooms remodelled in the baroque style. Baron Burghley rarely stayed at the House as it was impractical for his work at the courts.
Today the house and gardens are used for weddings and corporate events along with tours and film work. Burghley House is the location for the annual Burghley Horse Trials.
