Burghley - Garden of Surprises

This is the first of 2 posts on a visit to Burghley, this took place while I was visiting my cousin in Northampton.  We didn't go into the house but to the Garden of Surprises and the sculpture garden.
As the Garden of Surprises is full of water features there is a warning to the parents about children that may not be feeling to well ......
While were in the garden we had a game of Merrelles which is like Nines Mens Morris, but it is a slightly different game and also as I have not played it for years and years I go thrashed!
There was loads to see in the gardens and plenty of opportunity to get wet including the exit.

  1. I had no idea they had stuff like that at Burghley House! That really seems fun - shame it's a bit far for to pop over for an afternoon...
