Covering 12 acres that was reclaimed from scrub woodland, the sculpture garden at Burghley House contains a vast array of contemporary sculptures, some of which are considerably stranger than others! Some of my favourites are highlighted below.
The surroundings are very peaceful and we hardly saw anyone else the whole time we were there.
There is also a charming boat house by the lake where several benches are provided, especially needed in the hot weather.
