The Land Rover Burghley Horse Trials

Burghley House
Wednesday 2nd - Sunday 6th September 2020

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.

The three disciplines of the 3-day Event are designed to be a complete test of horsemanship. The first two days are dressage, followed by cross-country and then the showjumping round on the final day.



The glass fronted marquee, with private garden areas 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.

This year on Cross Country Day, guests will be provided with a private facility in the Champagne Bar overlooking the Trout Hatchery Fences. Hospitality guests will be served a glass of Pol Roger Champagne.

Reservations are taken for 2 upwards, with private tables guaranteed for parties of 4 up to 12 guests.

On Thursdays guests will be utilising the Exeter 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.
