Goodwood House

About

Goodwood is one of the finest sporting estates in the world. At its heart lies Goodwood House, the ancestral home of the Dukes of Richmond and Gordon, direct descendants of King Charles II. Today, it is still lived in by the present Duke's son and heir, the Earl of March and Kinrara, with his wife and family.

Set in the exquisitely decorated and gilded interiors of Goodwood House, the art collection is at an international level, with a magnificent collection of English paintings from the 17th and 18th centuries. These include the celebrated and glorious views of London by Canaletto, and magnificent sporting scenes by George Stubbs, England's most famous animal painter. The rooms are filled with fine furniture, Gobelins tapestries and Sèvres porcelain, all from the 18th century, as well as English Regency furniture in the Egyptian Dining Room. One of the most important sets of French furniture in the world is on display.

No good day out is ever complete without enjoying a delicious cream tea at Goodwood House. Take your time to wander through the state apartments, enjoying the stunning art collection on display, before indulging in the surroundings of the regency ballroom and afternoon tea.
