WHEELCHAIR ACCESS - YES - ramp in place. Forewarned is forearmed. No cameras are allowed in the house. This means the use of cameras WITH or WITHOUT flash is forbidden. Despite living in the locality for almost 30 years, this was my first visit to see the interior of the home of the Dukes of Richmond. If flint house design... More

Having paid £110 for two tickets and endured endless queues to get there we were extremely disappointed at having to wade through acres of mud, why on earth Goodwood could not have made more effort to put down bark chips or take some other action is beyond me. We had not been to Goodwood for a few years and we... More

My brother and I went to the Goodwood Festival Of Speed and had the most amazing 4 days ever. This is the best event of its type I have ever been to and can't wait to go back again. The organisers anticipate everything that the weather can throw at them and despite us having a couple of days rain we... More

Recently I visited the Goodwood Festival of Speed 2016 and what an event it was. We drove all the way from The Netherlands to FoS (using the Eurostar Train) knowing that we could run into some typical English weather. Well prepared we arrived but had no idea what to expect. FoS blew our minds, it was well organized, had the... More

Visited the good festival of Speed & Goodwood House - Pimms never tasted better, the service at the House is so polite, so competent. The Festival is to be proud of - Britain at its best, world standard

Loved the cars and the event but organisation needs improving. It was muddy but think they could have done better. Straw down to soak up some of the water. We stayed on the campsite. Would never do so again. Supposed to have 24 hour security, we were never checked once going in and kept awake Saturday night by load music... More

Another year another excellent Festival. I have been many times and Lord March and his team get better and better at putting on a first class motor sport event. Four days of indulgence if you are a petrol head plenty of entertainment as well if your not. A great long weekend or day out , you choose.
