Known as the ‘best stone town in England’ Stamford is a must on any tour. It is architecturally outstanding with numerous medieval buildings as well as fine Georgian streets and squares. Five Churches of the first rank cluster closely together for what Sir Walter described as ‘the finest scene between London and Edinburgh’. On the edge of the town lies Burghley House, an unrivalled Elizabethan House.
There is a volunteer led visitor centre inside St John’s Church, 74 High Street, between 10am-4pm on Wednesdays, Fridays, Saturdays and Bank Holidays.
