A Rich History

Ever since those early days, ‘Glorious Goodwood’ (as Raceweek became known) has been a firm fixture of the English summer season. King Edward VII, who attended every year, famously dubbed the festival meeting ‘a garden party with racing tacked on’. Today, the Racecourse overlooking the South Downs is known for top-tier racing and is considered by many to be the most beautiful in the world.
