Glorious Goodwood Races - Ladies Day

Birmingham, Coventry, Oxford

The Experience

Northern Belle Crest Logo

What a "Glorious" way to travel to one of the best horse race meetings in the UK,  but on your very own vintage train. Sit back and relax as you look forward to Ladies Day racing at the Goodwood Estate.

Your journey begins as your steward welcomes you aboard the Northern Belle to your comfortable armchair seat. Elegant tables laid with starched tablecloths, uniquely branded silverware and highly polished glasses complement the luxurious carriages.

Fine dining is a highlight of every journey and, once you have settled in, a delicious brunch with a Bellini is served as you travel towards Chichester, West Sussex.

In the care of your steward, sit back and relax in the convivial atmosphere, enjoying the views from your window. On the Northern Belle, the journey is as exciting as the destination.

On arrival at the station you will be transerred to the course and provided with enclosure entrance badges.

Horseracing has been a part of Goodwood since 1802, when the 3rd Duke of Richmond introduced the sport as an amusement for local army officers. Fast forward two hundred years and there are 19 unique race days, including our flagship event, the Qatar Goodwood Festival, affectionately known as Glorious Goodwood.

Marvel at the stunning racecourse, the convivial atmosphere and the glamorous crowd in attendance for the flagship meeting of the Godowood season. Excitement, fun and thrills of racing are guranteed today.

After a wonderful day rejoin the coach for the short journey back to the station, where we welcome you back on board the Northern Belle with a refreshing glass of champagne.

Later, you are served a sumptuous five-course dinner accompanied by half a bottle of wine as we wend our way home.
