Burghley Park is to be partially closed to all pedestrians and unauthorised vehicles in the weeks leading up to this year’s Event to ensure public safety during the site build and breakdown periods for this world-renowned event.

Event Director, Elizabeth Inman, said: “Health and Safety regulations unfortunately mean that we are required to close the central area of the Park to pedestrians and unauthorised vehicles for a limited period. We are hugely grateful for the understanding shown by local residents and visitors during the partial park closure. ”

The restricted area will be clearly signposted at key points in the Park from Monday 5 August – Wednesday 4 September 2019 (inclusive) and will then be re-applied from Monday 9 September to Friday 20 September 2019 (inclusive) to cover the breakdown of the Event.

Access to Burghley House and Gardens remains unaffected via the main Pilsgate Lodge entrance on Barnack Road.

Access to the Lower Park remains open and unaffected up to the cattle grid via the Station Gates entrance on Barnack Road.

Defender Burghley is widely recognised as one of the UK’s leading televised sporting events, attracting over 160,000 visitors in recent years and generating significant revenue for the local economy.

The Box Office is open until Monday 26th August offering attractive prices to pre-purchase tickets in advance of the event. To order click here.
