Held in the beautiful parkland surrounding Goodwood House, the Festival of Speed is motorsport’s ultimate summer garden party, an intoxicating celebration of the world’s most glamorous sport.
Nowhere else will you get so close to the cars and bikes as they blast up the Hillclimbtrack; nowhere else will you enjoy such unrestricted access to the machines and the drivers who made them famous.
It has been running since 1993 on the same stretch of the March family’s driveway. While the location has remained the same and Lord March continues to lead the creative direction, the main aspect that has evolved is the scale. With the enthusiasm and investment of the wider motoring and motorsport community, FOS has become an internationally celebrated, sell-out occasion.
The Festival of Speed offers enthusiasts an unrivalled opportunity to get close to the action, and to meet the great champions who gather at Goodwood each summer.
Trackside viewing at the most dramatic corner on the hill.
With its trackside balcony and garden Clark Pavilion is arguably the best vantage point from which to watch all the action with outdoor seating overlooking the Hillclimb.
The unique interior has been designed to be relaxed and stylish with memorabilia that celebrates the life of namesake Jim Clark; British Formula One driver and twice
world champion. It’s also close to the Off-Road Arena, and a short walk up the hill to the Forest Rally Stage.
Tables for 2 upwards, even numbers.
Named in honour of world-renowned drivers – Gurney, Hill, Moss and Brabham – the pavilions occupy one of the best viewing locations on the Hillclimb where the cars are building up speed for the blast past Goodwood House, a spot where a driver’s skill can make all the difference to the race.
The Hill and Gurney Pavilions are the perfect space to entertain clients, teams and guests either inside or out on the balcony, taking in the spectacle of the event. No matter which option you choose, rest assured our team will look after your every need.
Choose from either a table for 10 in a shared restaurant or a private pavilion for 30.
