Glorious GoodwoodEdward VII famously described Glorious Goodwood as a "garden party with racing tacked on" and the former King of England certainly knew a few things about horses and socialising. A chain-smoking, fashionable dandy renowned for his genial bonhomie more than his political nous, Edward's steed Ambush II once won the Grand National but this five-day meeting at one of the world's most beautiful racecourses was dearest to his heart. The Glorious Goodwood Festival remains to this day one of the highlights of the British summer sporting and social calendars, bringing together some of the finest thoroughbreds (both horses and humans) to the picturesque Sussex Downs - with the tag-line: "It's racing chic, it's glorious!". Less stuffy and somewhat classier than Ascot, Glorious Goodwood is synonymous with quintessential English summer fashion and offers superb hospitality, ranging from Champagne and canapés to sumptuous four course lunches and afternoon tea. Less than an hour and a half drive from London (or 1h40min train to Chichester) it provides the opportunity of a perfect escape for families and friends in a stunning setting.

About Goodwood Racecourse

On a fine day, Goodwood Racecourse is one of the most beautiful in the world. Located north of Chichester on the Sussex Downs, a stone's throw from an Iron Age hill fort and set in the luscious grounds of an estate belonging to the family of the Duke of Richmond, Goodwood hosts the annual Glorious Goodwood five-day meeting, one of the highlights of the British flat racing (not to mention social) calendar.
