The Land Rover Burghley Horse Trials

Burghley House
Thursday 2nd - Sunday 5th September 2021

Set within the beautiful parklands of Burghley House, the Land Rover Burghley Horse Trials offers exclusive entertaining facilities at its prime location against the backdrop of the magnificent Elizabethan Burghley House.

Despite the sport being known as ‘Three Day Eventing’ originally, the Burghley Horse Trials takes place over four days: the first two days are dressage, followed by cross-country and then the  showjumping round on the final day.



The hospitality marquee, whilst ideally situated in the main thoroughfare of the event, provides a peaceful haven with a gracious backdrop of Burghley House.

The marquee is equipped with private garden areas and is close to the main areas of interest at the Horse Trials. The fabled shopping avenues are only a short walk away with over 500 shops offering an unbeatable array of luxury goods, rural crafts, jewellery, furniture and clothing. The main arena is even closer where guests can enjoy the dressage, the start and finish of the Cross Country and the show jumping finale.

Reservations are taken for 2 upwards, with private tables guaranteed for parties of 6 up to 12 guests.

On Thursday guests will be utilising the Avebury Enclosure which gives excellent views of Burghley House and is a short walk from the main arena.

Private facilities available for 30 or more guests.
