On Sunday we all drove to Stamford (see map) to visit Burghley House. We had a tour of the house (no photography allowed unfortunately), as well as a very nice roast dinner lunch in the Orangery restaurant.
After this we used our tickets to tour the grounds, including the water based Gardens of Surprise, and the sculpture garden, which had lots of impressive sculptures all over the grounds.
We were lucky enough to come across some very tame deer, as well as watching a duck and her chicks walk past us on their way to the lake.
All the weekend photos are here:
