Glorious Goodwood, ‘the worlds most beautiful racecourse’ where more than 100,000 people flock through the gates during the showpiece Festival to enjoy the chic, relaxed and incredibly stylish atmosphere. Widely acknowledged as the ‘sporting and social highlight of the summer’, Glorious Goodwood is a quintessentially English event, where Champagne and strawberries are in abundance.
Glorious Goodwood has always attracted the very best from the international world of horseracing and the likes of Frankel have graced the Downs in recent years to the delight of racegoers who come from far and wide to experience this iconic Festival.
The racecourse is awash with colour. A vibrant sea of Panamas, Pimm’s and Panache. The scene is set for the world’s greatest horses and jockeys to do battle as they strive for top honours.
Be inspired by a rich horseracing heritage and experience the delights of an afternoon at ‘Glorious Goodwood.’
Glorious Goodwood comes to a close with a superb card on Saturday 2nd August. There are two main highlights with the Blue Square Stewards Cup and its traditional cavalry charge providing a fitting finale to the five-day Festival, along with the Group One Markel Insurance Nassau Stakes, part of the prestigious British Champions Series. There is always a fantastic atmosphere as the Festival reaches a climax and packed crowds enjoy an action-packed afternoon’s racing on the Downs.
We aim to arrive at Goodwood by midday, giving you time to soak up the unique atmosphere while enjoying a leisurely lunch within the wonderfully breathtaking scenery of the Sussex downs. The racing is scheduled to start at 2.15pm and finishes with the last race at 5.40pm. Our coach will return home at approximately 6.15pm.
