Burghley House

Our trip to Burghley House and Gardens

In June we went to Stamford to have a tour of Burghley House as well as walking around the sculpture garden and Garden of Surprises. We were amazed to see so many weird and wonderful sculptures which we could stand really close to. We went into a classroom where we were able to make our own tile to print with using the gardens as our inspiration.

We walked around the enormous, old house finding out what life would have been like for the people living and working there hundreds of years ago. We heard about connections with the Royal family and saw how some artists painted straight onto walls and even on the ceilings of some of the rooms!
