Venue Focus; Goodwood
Set in the heart of the 12,000 acre Goodwood Estate on the glorious Sussex Downs, The Goodwood Hotel is the picture perfect wedding venue – From an intimate ceremony or private wedding breakfast to a lavish wedding reception or a jolly good knees up, we love a reason to celebrate.
The beauty of Goodwood is not only its private setting amongst mature, private parkland but the flexibility it can offer an event. Goodwood’s stunning location, magnificent art collection, prestigious sporting events and unique heritage combine to give credence to the incomparable epithet, ‘Glorious Goodwood’.
Filled with natural daylight with sophisticated interiors, the spacious Cedar Suite is wonderful for the wedding breakfast. With its own terrace, patio area and private bar and lounge, this lavish room works well for weddings of all sizes.
Civil ceremonies take place in either the Yellow Drawing Room or the grand Regency Ballroom, both stunning spaces with an ornate interior design, while the drinks reception can be hosted on the natural stone portico during the summer, allowing guests to make the most of the breath-taking views, or the adjoining Front Hall during winter which is an impressive space with a warm jewel coloured décor and two large open fires.
For a magical wedding breakfast, the Regency Ballroom is a must. From the rich red patterned wallpaper to the gold rimmed doors and array of priceless works of art, this space is simply stunning. It also benefits from the adjoining Supper Room, ensuring plenty of space for guests to dance the night away or sit and mingle with family and friends.
The Kennels is a gorgeous Grade II listed Georgian building. It is ideal for intimate weddings, with the book-lined walls of the Music Room or the elegant Library proving a chic spot to exchange vows. With a wow factor interior design, fusing eclectic furnishings and artwork, inspired by the Estate, set against historic architecture, The Kennels offers a distinctively different and chic backdrop for the drinks reception and wedding breakfast.
The Dukes of Richmond have been hosting grand celebrations on the Goodwood Estate for royalty and celebrities for over 300 years. Today, Goodwood event spaces can host a variety of private and corporate events that are not only memorable, but spectacular.
