Goodwood Walks in West Sussex
There are a number of stunning walks in West Sussex and across the Goodwood Estate through fields and woodland rides up to the historic view point on St. Roche’s Hill, known as ‘The Trundle’, where the visitor will be able to clearly see Goodwood’s famous Racecourse as well as the lowland areas surrounding Chichester. On a clear day the Isle of Wight is visible across the Solent.

Although there are no Open Access areas at Goodwood (as defined in the Countryside and Rights of Way Act and known as ‘Right to Roam’) Goodwood offers, in association with the West Sussex County Council, its own Country Park. This area is to the south and east of the Racecourse (including The Trundle) and was granted by The Duke in 1992, as a permissive right, to allow members of the public to enjoy and walk in West Sussex.

Dog Walks in West Sussex
Due to its legacy as a sporting Estate, the Goodwood Estate remains welcoming to dog owners and their four legged companions. Dogs are welcome at The Kennels, the home to Goodwood Club members, and at the Goodwood Hotel.
All guests are requested to keep their dogs on the lead or under proper control at all times when using the dog walks in West Sussex. To protect the farm animals, wildlife, flora and fauna on the Estate, dogs are not allowed to run free in woodlands or fields adjacent to the footpaths.
