History of the House and The Historic Grounds
The first stone was laid at Endsleigh in 1810 by Georgiana, Duchess of Bedford and her three eldest stepsons. The land had come to the Russell family on the dissolution of the monasteries; it had previously been church land, owned by Tavistock Abbey and was given by the King ‘for services rendered’.
Goodwood House has been home to family parties for over 200 years. This New Year create magical memories with friends and family as the Earl and Countess of March open Goodwood House for this unique event.
Once you have checked into The Goodwood Hotel, you have time to prepare before the black tie evening ahead. A welcome drinks reception will be held prior to your transfer to Goodwood House.

Please read about this talented Artist Blacksmith in the House and Garden Section under Landscape Architecture.
An old adage says– ‘with an anvil and a hammer, a blacksmith can make everything he needs. Then he makes everything everyone else needs.’
For the traditional blacksmith this still holds true, but there is a new breed who strive to develop the craft beyond the purely utilitarian.
Just over 200 years ago the 3rd Duke of Richmond built grand kennels designed by James Wyatt, in the very latest architectural style, so that his hounds should live in extraordinary comfort, and enjoy both wonderful feasts and glorious scenery.
The Earl of March shared this ambition to create an equally enlightened and special place on the Goodwood Estate, where one can enjoy great food and good company in an inspiring setting.
So he conceived the wonderful idea of converting these elegant old buildings into ‘The Kennels’, an exclusive Clubhouse for anyone who belongs to a sporting club on the Estate.
One of Vermeer’s most celebrated paintings is being beautifully and sensitively illuminated using the new ArtLED lighting fitting designed and manufactured by the Light Projects Group.
‘Girl with a Pearl Earring’ is an oil on canvass painting 44.5cm x 39cm and painted by Johannes Vermeer around 1665 – 1667. The lighting designers approached Light Projects to supply suitable lighting to carefully illuminate such a piece and the ArtLED was recommended as being most suitable

Goodwood Estate is one of the finest lowland estates in Europe and has an organic home farm. It occupies a beautiful corner of West Sussex with a varied landscape rising from the flat plain up to the hills on which the famous race course is sited. This is generally regarded as the most beautiful racecourse in the world with stunning views across the Sussex Downs. In recent years the estate has also become famous for its two major motoring events each year namely the Festival of Speed and the Revival Meeting. The estate also boasts a motor racing track and an airfield and is the home to Rolls Royce Motor Cars whose factory is sited on the estate. Other attractions include the Goodwood Hotel and the Goodwood Golf Club which boasts two beautiful 18 hole golf courses. It is also home to one of the best shoots in the country.
The sell-out 2012 Goodwood Revival achieved a record 146,000 attendees over the three day event (14th-16th September) in glorious Autumn sunshine. Motor sport enthusiasts and retro-fashion fans flocked to Goodwood to join in the fun and celebrations at the world’s largest historic motor race meeting, firmly establishing the Revival as the ‘must attend’ event of the year.
