“A Great House with connections to the Battle of Waterloo.”
Reviewed 23 August 2014

This visit gave us the opportunity to visit somewhere linked to Waterloo a subject we have been interested in for a while. The place is packed with art treasures of all descriptions and has a very grand tea served in the actual Regency Ballroom. Be warned the afternoon tea options are not cheap. We found the staff of the house to be very approachable and knowledgeable.

“Not too be missed.”
Reviewed 7 July 2014

Had a really lovely, interesting tour of Goodwood House, followed by a cream tea. The ladies who do the tour guide are so well informed, and at the end you are waited on by first class waiters serving you a substantial cream tea, thank you, enjoyed the experience.

“sets standards of excellence for a motoring event”
Reviewed 5 July 2014

This is about the 5th time we've visited the FoS and it continues to set standards matched only by the Goodwood revival. All era's and genres of the motoring world are represented here, rallying, formula one, classic cars, concours displays, motorbikes, vintage, classic and modern supercars and as a bonus superb air displays, certainly great value considering what's on offer.
If you are just a day visitor expect to see about a third of what's here and a couple of tips, a) plan out beforehand what you most want to see - you CAN"T see it all in a day and b) travel light as heavy camera bags and picnic hampers slow you down as the day wears on and in the end inhibits seeing all you want to.
Lastly a word of commendation to the support staff, even the hard working car park attendants look like they enjoy their job and are proud to be part of the event.

“Superb event!!”
Reviewed 4 July 2014

This is the second time we've visited the FOS, and we can't wait for next year, superb event for "petrol heads" . I took my sons aged11&13, and they loved it, loads to see & do. Superb cars, some famous faces, the hill climb is great to watch, as were the Red Arrows & the Typhoon flying over head. You can get close up to some amazing cars!!
Last year we were caught in traffic on the way to the event, this year we stayed the weekend in the New Forest, and left early to get to the event, much easier!! We stayed all day and left about 19.30, traffic was fine!
I'd recommend taking your own food & drinks as it's expensive to buy once your there, but there are plenty of places to get food!
