The best thing about Goodwood House is that it is more a family home than a grand mansion. All the rooms are beautifully decorated and obviously lived in. The pictures are varied and fascinating. Very interesting and well worth visiting if you can.

We visited here recently. We were asked to wait a few minutes for the next tour, which turned out to be a personal tour with a very knowledgeable guide. The house is stunning, with lots of beautiful old furniture, decoration and artefacts. It is also...More
