Have your say

Goodwood hosts the 2015 Revival this weekend. From travel to parking, here’s what you need to know.

Can I buy a ticket on the day?

Entry is by advance ticket only. It is not possible to buy ticket(s) on the day, and there will be no admission without a ticket.

Do children get in free?

There is complimentary entry for children 12 years and under. They do not need a ticket to enter but a free-of-charge children’s wristband can be ordered. Young people between 13 and 21 years old pay half the adult ticket price.

Where do I park?

Parking at the Revival is free and open from 07:00hrs each day. All car parking is on grassland. Hard standing for motorcycle parking is available in car park A for customers arriving from the North and East, and car park C is for customers arriving from the West and South. Helmet storage is also available. Parking on approach roads at any time will not be permitted.

Can I get there on public transport?

Yes. Buses (no.902) will run between Chichester Railway Station and the Revival from 0700-2200hrs, approximately every half an hour. Please note that the pick-up/drop-off point from 1400hrs will be Chichester Bus Station.

The cost is £5 for a single or £6 return.

Is there a dress code?

Although not compulsory, the vast majority of Revival visitors dress in period style with many going to great lengths to achieve that authentic look. The resulting step-back-in-time spectacle plays a key role in making the Revival such a unique event.

While you’re not required to dress up (unless you qualify for central Paddock access, in which case a jacket and tie is necessary for gentlemen, and a dress or suit for the ladies), you’ll feel much more involved if you do. And whether you go for the slick urban look, gentrified country style or chocs-away military aesthetic, it’s not difficult or costly to dress appropriately.

What about the noise?

Due to the nature of the event, visitors can expect to experience a certain level of noise from the vehicles taking part. Ear defenders (available at the Goodwood Shops on-site) will enable all visitors, especially children, to get closer to the action without feeling uncomfortable.

Can I bring the dog?

No dogs are permitted into the event, nor should they be left in your car or in the campsite. Only guide dogs and assistance dogs for the disabled are allowed on site.
