Set high on the undulating Sussex Downs, with stunning vistas of gently rolling countryside to the north and towards the sea and the Isle of Wight to the south, Goodwood Racecourse is considered by many to be simply the most beautiful racecourse in the world. There are twenty days of racing from May to September, including the world famous five-day Festival Meeting. This is the pinnacle of Goodwood's flat racing season and known admiringly and affectionately as 'Glorious Goodwood.' The final event of the English Season, for many it is the highlight of the summer, described by The Times as "One of the most beguiling of racing weeks." The Meeting attracts the very best entries from the international world of horseracing, such as the Godolphin team and Frankie Dettori and a crowd that's both fashionable and knowledgeable. The mood is relaxed, yet stylish, epitomised by Edward VII's affectionate description of it as "A garden party with racing tacked on."
The combination of sublime surroundings and world-class racing makes Goodwood the perfect place for entertaining. Whether in a private box or a table in the Charlton Hunt Restaurant looking straight down the course, you'll enjoy top class cuisine, impeccable service and meticulous attention to detail.
