Park & Picnic
For £53 you can reserve a Park & Picnic berth by the rails and watch the horses storm past the three-furlong point. The price also includes up to four Lennox Enclosure tickets.
Reserving your berth ahead of race day is highly recommended.
Public parking is available for all enclosures in Car Park 8 (£5) and Car Park 9 (free). Richmond Enclosure ticket holders can also use Car Park 5 (£5), subject to availability. Coach parking is available free of charge in Car Park 7.
Racecards are the official programmes for your race day at Goodwood. They give you the form of the day's runners and riders, as well as information on how you can make the most of your day, including eating and drinking, entertainment and live music.
Goodwood is stylish, but not-stuffy when it comes to raceday attire. We encourage our guests to dress comfortably, whilst chanelling their inner fashionista.
That being said, there is a dress code for each enclosure that we ask our guests to adhere to, when visiting the Racecourse.
In conjunction with Stagecoach buses, we provide a complimentary return bus service that runs from Chichester Railway Station to the Racecourse throughout the day. Services start from 10.15am.
Goodwood Racecourse is committed to providing excellent facilities so that all our guests can enjoy their day at the races to the full, whatever their requirements. For all of our accessibility information take a look at our accessibility page.
Concessions are available for both over 65s and students at all fixtures (excluding Qatar Goodwood Festival and Three Friday Nights). Students are required to show a valid NUS card upon arrival. Concessionary discount is 50% off the on-the-day price for both the Gordon Enclosure and Lennox Enclosure.
What to expect...
The whole family will appreciate a day on the South Downs; whilst adults indulge in our adrenaline charged, on-track action (and of course, the youngsters can get involved too!) the little ones will love exploring our children's play area and dancing to our Jazz Band and Sax Quartet on the grass.
