The Qatar Goodwood Festival

Still known by many as Glorious Goodwood, the Qatar Goodwood Festival is the pinnacle of the UK flat racing season with top trainers and jockeys battling it out in prestigious races such as The Stewards’ Cup.

For those looking to arrive in style Goodwood Heliport lies within the teardrop section of the track. After landing a courtesy car will transport you to the main racecourse complex with its views over the rolling South Downs and to the sea looking south.

Landing slots are limited and are allocated on a first come first served basis, so booking early will give you a greater choice of times.

Please be sure to give an indication of where you would like to be picked up from so we can suggest an appropriate landing site for the helicopter.
