Visiting Goodwood House

Nestled in the spectacular Sussex countryside, surrounded by mature parklands, and home to the Dukes of Richmond for centuries, Goodwood House combines the glamour of a great English country house with the warmth of a family home. With an outstanding collection of art on display, the House is open to visitors from March to October. For further details see Opening Times|.

Afternoon Tea

No good day out is ever complete without enjoying a delicious cream tea. Teas are served in the magnificent Ballroom, open from 2pm – 4.30pm on Open Days for visitors taking a tour of the House. 

New to Goodwood House in April, you can now enjoy a luxury afternoon tea to complete your visit; a decadent treat of tea or coffee served with a home-made Goodwood House scone, Rhodda clotted cream and strawberry jam along with a selection of finger sandwiches and pastries.
