Glorious Goodwood

It’s considered one of the sporting and social highlights of the season and known affectionately as ‘Glorious Goodwood’. Opening on July 28th, the Qatar Goodwood Festival offers a feast of top quality racing, great food and drink, live music and the opportunity to dress up in your finery.

With the world’s top equestrians taking part, race-goers have the opportunity to watch the best the international world of horseracing has to offer all set in the glorious surroundings of the Sussex Downs.

The atmosphere is relaxed and informal – a celebration of tradition and glamour where high society and competitive horseracing come together for five action-packed days. Prize money totals an impressive £4.5 million!

Adding to the whole experience is the chance to enjoy a variety of fine dining options prepared by Goodwood’s top chefs. Enjoy a three-course meal in the comfort of a private box overlooking the race track or try one of the on-site restaurants.

The Sussex Bistro offers contemporary Italian dishes or you can choose from a selection of seasonal dishes in the Double Trigger Restaurant. For panoramic views from Chichester to the Isle of Wight try The Charlton Hunt Restaurant. Fish lovers will love The Horsewalk Restaurant in the Richmond Enclosure (members only).

If you’re taking a picnic, naturally we recommend smoked salmon sandwiches, a light smoked salmon salad with peas and courgettes, smoked salmon with lemon dressing or simply with soft cheese and dill on rye bread.
