On the outskirts of Stamford is Burghley Estate where Queen Elizabeth I had Burghley House built for her Lord High Treasurer, William Cecil. There is lots to do and see at Burghley and well worth a visit.
Stamford became famous for its wool trade and as a halfway stopping point for the mail coaches between London and York.
