“Different experience”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013

Goodwood house is open to the public only on certain days so check before you visit. House tour is very interesting with guides if you would prefer. Only takes an hour approx. You can only have tea if you do the tour but definitely well worth it. The cake and scone were super . They only serve this with tea no sandwiches . Excellent value for only £7. The grounds are very well kept.

“Ancestral home”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 28, 2013

Goodwood House is the seat of the Earl of March and well worth a visit. There is a nice little restaurant at reasonable prices. During the year there are various exhibitions and events including an annual Antique Fair which is always well attended and has some outstanding items to see and purchase. There is a free car park.
Only criticism is that it is sometimes not available so make sure you check before driving out for a visit.

“Art and history”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 17, 2013

Local history and the art collection of Goodwood house were explained in detail by very knowledgeable staff. Not for children really - they'd have been bored rigid and so would anyone else not interested in paintings or the locality.
