Can anyone suggest a site close (within 10 miles) to the Goodwood Motor Racing Circuit in West Sussex. Wife and I intend to visit the revival in September. We stayed at Graffham last time which was superb but a little out of the way. I have read reviews and a lot of sites in the area seem to be on noisy main roads. Many thanks, Gary.

I would use chichester Lake Side, it's less than 4 miles from the circuit so easy on a bike - the traffic during the Revival Meeting is VERY VERY heavy and the A27 is chocker.

The local news paper normaly does a special offer - buy a Saturday or Sunday ticket and get a ticket for Friday free.

Thanks for comments, spent 1 day at revival a couple of years ago and although expensive was absolutely fantastic. Far too much to see in one day and the racing was superb. Had considered Lakeside but was put off by poor reviews, maybe I'll re-consider.

Our view is that as during the day we will be at Goodwood and only back at the caravan to sleep we won't be using the site facilities anyway .

There's camping on site, or have you decided against that?

 

Very envious that you're going - we should have gone before our son started school, as it's in term time and too far to go just for a weekend without taking him out of school :(

I go every other year or so because my brother-in-law works for the company who publish the programmes, so he gets free tickets ;)

 

Last year, we did see a large, temporary campsite next to one of the entrances - is that not available? Would be my choice - walking distance to the entrance, so you miss all the horrendous traffic (I avoid the queues by going on my motorbike).

Thanks re comments about 'on-site' camping, call me a snob but not really my cup of tea!

From what we gather the on site camping is booked early (fully booked already) and they are too close together .

I won't call you a snob, but I do wonder why you think someone might!
