Overview

Goodwood House, home to the Dukes of Richmond for over 300 years, is open to the public for 60 days a year.

The Regency State Apartments house some astonishing treasures including celebrated paintings by horse artist George Stubbs and Canaletto's stunning views of the City of London. An extensive Sevres porcelain service is also on show, together with French tapestries, fine furniture, and fascinating objects.

History comes to life at Goodwood House, with portraits of the Kings and Queens of England, of dukes and courtiers, all here due to the origins of the family as descendants of King Charles II. Not only does Goodwood display a classic English art collection, but as the family home of the Earl and Countess of March and Kinrara, it also has a warmth and charm all of its own.

School Visits

Goodwood offers schools and colleges a wide range of workshops and visits to facilitate Learning Outside the Classroom, using the rich variety of sites and businesses found on the Estate. This learning programme is typically delivered through the Goodwood Education Trust (formerly West Sussex Countryside Studies Trust), a charity established by the Duke of Richmond in 1976.

The Education Officer can tailor activities to suit specific needs and learning objectives. Teachers are invited to make a pre-visit, so the activities can be discussed and risk assessments undertaken. All visits will be coordinated and usually lead by the Education Officer, assisted by Education Guides and Estate staff as appropriate.
