Goodwood RacecourseOn 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. The historic racecourse is now into its third century of racing but continues to adapt to its increasing popularity, as exemplified by the construction of the eye-catching Sussex Stand, completed in 1990 and commended by the Royal Fine Arts Commission. The picturesque course, which hosts 22 notable races a year, has an undulating track is renowned for its fog owing to its proximity to the coast. The grounds also host motor-racing's annual Festival of Speed in July and Goodwood Revival in September.
