Grandstands

Land Rover Burghley Horse Trials comprises of Dressage which takes place in the Main Arena on the Thursday and Friday, Cross Country which takes place out on the Cross Country course around the Park on the Saturday and Showjumping in the Main Arena on the Sunday. Members have access to the North Stand in the Main Arena on the Thursday and Friday however if you are not a Member it is possible to purchase grandstand seats to watch the action. It is strongly advised that seats are purchased in advance of the Event as these do sell out. When purchasing a grandstand seat this includes:

  • Your own seat in the grandstand for the day; you are free to come and go all day
  • Dressage on Thursday and Friday
  • View of the arena Cross Country fence on Saturday
  • Showjumping on Sunday
  • Arena Displays and activities on all days
  • Prize giving presentation on Sunday

Please note: children aged 12 years and under when accompanied by an adult are admitted to the showground free of charge. If wishing to enter the grandstand children do require a ticket for a grandstand seat. No dogs are allowed in the Grandstand, with the exception of Assistance Dogs.

Please also note that there are no headset seats this year. Burghley Radio will be available instead. This will allow visitors to keep up with the action wherever they are on the showground.

Important Note Regarding The East Stand: Positive action has been taken following numerous comments received in recent years about the obstructed viewing from the front rows (particularly on Thursday and Friday) as ticket holders come and go and officials pass to and fro.

With the help of Arena Seating, our grandstand providers, we have enhanced the design of the stand within the limited space that we have available by switching entry and exit from the front, to a staircase at the rear of the stand ie there is no access/exit from the front – good news, no more comings and goings to block your view.

As an added bonus, this will also mean that the stand is even closer to the Main Arena.
