Spymaster’s Guide 

Burghley’s Chief Spymaster Cecil the Mole has set a series of special spy missions in his clever Spymaster Guide. Grab one of these for FREE on arrival.

So much to explore

Bug houses, butterfly banks, secret tunnels, woodland play and den building provide a world of discovery that will enchant all ages.

Something for everyone

Wide pathways, sensory wall, accessible platforms in the lower levels of the towers and accessible look out points across the gorge mean everyone can come and play.

Toddler Play

Younger children will love their very own mini play tower. Featuring low level adventuring with a slide, rope bridge and balancing trail.

Refuel at The Muddy Mole

All of the play and exploring can be hungry work. When it’s time to take a rest, The Muddy Mole is the perfect spot to refuel. Grab a bite to eat and go again.
