Burghley horse trials

Burghley Horse Trials Hospitality Facilities

Our hospitality marquee, whilst ideally situated in the main thoroughfare of the event, provides a peaceful haven with the 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 marquee houses both the Burghley VIP Restaurant and the Private Pavilions. 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 we will be providing guests with a private facility in the Champagne Bar overlooking the Trout Hatchery Fences. Hospitality guests will be served with a glass of Pol Roger Champagne.

The Private Pavilions

Private Pavilions are available for the whole event or individual days for parties exceeding 30 guests.

As well as having all the benefits of the Burghley VIP Restaurant, Private Pavilion holders also enjoy their own external personalised sign, plus the ability to fly their company flag.



The Burghley VIP Restaurant

The Burghley VIP Restaurant provides an excellent location for entertaining small groups of clients or even enjoying a day out with friends.

Bookings are taken from 2 upwards with private tables guaranteed for parties of 4 up to 12.  On Thursday we will be utilising the Exeter Enclosure which gives excellent views of Burghley House and is a short walk from the main arena.
