Theres not many better places to go racing in the summer than at Goodwood Racecourse with it's fabulous racecourse situated in idyllic surroundings. That's not to say it is all peace and quiet at Godowood Races as it is very popular throughout the summer months, for most of their events.
The main event at Goodwood Races in 2017 is the Glorious Goodwood Festival which takes place at the beginning of August. All five days feature fantastic racing as well as great entertainment throughout the day. We have packages for all five days of the Glorious Goodwood Festival to meet your budget and requirements.
Friday evenings at Goodwood Racecourse are becoming extremely popular due to the music acts playing live after racing. In 2017, three acts play with Tinie Tempah first up on Friday 2nd June, Legendary DJ Pete Tong plays on the 9th June whilst the final act is from Sigma on Friday 16th June. Again, these are very popular and you should book early to avoid disappointment.
