We spent a fascinating hour and a half at this stunning house on a tour. Our guide was knowledgeable and interesting- giving us a potted history of the building and resident family. Lots of facts for the history buff, lots of sporty facts for the hunting/shooting/horse/car racing buff! Lots of fabulous paintings, tapestries and furniture - the interior is beautiful... More

What luck to find myself on a private morning tour recently which had been organised by the Worthing U3A. House tours are usually conducted in the afternoon but a private viewing had been arranged for about 20 of us. Upon arrival tea, coffee and home made biscuits were offered - really delicious. The guide we had for the morning was... More

This was my wife's birthday treat and it would be difficult to improve. We did the house tour first, it's a lovely house and delightful to see inside, the beautiful furniture and paintings compliment the beautiful rooms, we felt privileged to have a peek. The cream tea rounded the visit off beautifully- absolutely delicious and far too much to eat!... More

Found this wonderful offer through Facebook for Tour and Afternoon Tea and thought it would be a great present for my StepMum's 60th Birthday. Arrived on a lovely sunny Sunday lunchtime and were welcomed by a very courteous man on the door. Staff were very friendly and polite. We joined the first tour of the day which was hosted by...

Attended the GRRC Members Day & Goodwood House Openday, with lots of family entertainment laid on by Lord March & his team. Best of all is stretching out on the massive lawn enjoying the picnic you've brought followed by a meander around the member's vehicles exhibited.

My son and his fiancée chose Goodwood House for their wedding reception. From the first visit to view the venue they received an exceptional service - thank you Felicity.

We attended a wedding reception here and it was stunning. A truly remarkable location. The food was excellent and the service was definitely first class. I can honestly say that I have never seen food severed with such grace and style.

It wasn’t the best of starts. Before our visit to Goodwood, I had contacted the estate office several times (both via email and telephone) to determine exactly when house tours were starting and how to book. Repeatedly, I was told that the information would be put on the website in due course, when in fact it had already been declared... More
