The Estate hosts three of the biggest events in the summer social calendar, the The Festival of Speed, The Qatar Goodwood Festival and Goodwood Revival, with hospitality packages available.
The activities available here are endless, from the traditional country pursuits of shooting and archery to supercar driving experiences, stunt driving lessons and vintage road rallies.
Goodwood Estate’s aerodrome offers Cessna flying lessons and Warbird flight experiences, along with “grapefruit bombing” – a fun and surprisingly competitive activity that takes place with one person flying a plane (under instruction), and the other aiming grapefruits at targets on the airfield.
For those looking for a truly special experience, we can offer a once in a lifetime opportunity to be driven around the Goodwood Motor Circuit by a professional racing driver in one of the most valuable supercars in the world – a La Ferrari, a McLaren F1 GTR or a Ferrari 250 GTO.
