  View of Fallow Deer, Burghley Park, Stamford, Lincolnshire, England   Burghley House, Stamford.

The deer at Burghley are fallow deer which are not very large - the top of their back comes up to our waist level. They are part of a herd of around 400 which was established more than 450 years ago.

Burghley Park is open to the public without charge except for event days, I believe, every day of the year.
