Looking to impress your staff or in need of some client schmoosing? The premium hospitality experience at Goodwood House is just the ticket.
The Qatar Goodwood Festival (popularly known as ‘Glorious Goodwood’) is a five-day festival of thrilling action and is one of the highlights of the flat-racing season. From 30 July to 3 August, you can dress up in fascinators and your best attire and watch the dramatic races to the backdrop of the rolling Sussex countryside.
To make it even more special, you could splash out on one of the premium hospitality experiences. Our top pick would be the VIP Tom Kerridge lunch in the Ballroom of Goodwood House, followed by an afternoon in a private area at the races. This relaxed and intimate experience is a very special opportunity for a select group to enjoy the culinary skills, and company, of one of the world's most sought-after chefs.
'Glorious Goodwood' is one of the most important races of the flat-racing season
Your day will begin at Goodwood House, the family home of the Duke and Duchess of Richmond and Gordon, where Champagne and canapés will be followed by a sumptuous two-course lunch in the ballroom. You will be joining the ranks of the distinguished friends and guests of the Richmond family who have enjoyed Goodwood's renowned hospitality over the past three-hundred years.
After, you’ll be heading over to the private area of the Secret Garden. This enchanting indoor garden restaurant, located just beyond the winning post, is an ideal place to relax and enjoy champagne and afternoon tea for the remainder of the day, alongside the exhilarating action.
