Goodwood House


The Goodwood Estate is in the heart of West Sussex and is home to the world famous Festival of Speed, Goodwood Revival and Glorious Goodwood. Goodwood House and Estate has been the home of the Dukes of Richmond & Lennox for over 300 years,
and there can be few places as beautiful.

Goodwood is a traditional country estate of 12,000 acres. Its natural beauty, set amongst rolling Downland and legendary hospitality are perfect reasons to visit Chichester.  It has drawn people to it throughout three centuries of ownership by the Dukes of Richmond. 
The family home combines the glamour of a great English country house with the warmth of a family home. It also provides a dramatic setting for one of the most significant private art collections in the country. The State Apartments, restored to their full Regency splendour, reflect the exoticism and opulence of this period.

Goodwood House is open from March to October for tours and luxury afternoon tea.
