Our True Intent is All for Your Delight

August Bank Holiday at Goodwood

Goodwood is located just fifteen minutes away from our Bognor Regis resort in the beautiful scenery of the South Downs National park. The Goodwood estate plays host to a number of prestigious events throughout the year including Glorious Goodwood, Goodwood Revival and the festival of speed. A motor circuit, aerodrome, golf course, kennels and racecourse all contribute to the Goodwood estate.

This August bank holiday weekend will see the Butlin’s team returning to Goodwood for a fifth year to bring the fun of the seaside to the races. And maybe even some of that typically British seaside weather!

Throughout the weekend you’ll find our famous Redcoats mingling with guests up and down the racecourse or dotted around the ‘Butlin’s playground’. Located at the far end of the Lennox enclosure, our playground is ready and awaiting adventure! From HUGE deckchairs that are big enough for the whole family to wandering Redcoats carrying life-sized picture frames, there’s never a photo opportunity to be missed.

The Butlin’s playground has been a stand-out feature of Goodwood’s racecourse for three years and it’s a feature we’re delighted to bring to this enchanting weekend of vintage 50s fun.

On top of this, expect to see a spectacular firework display, fire dancers, live bands, a traditional fairground for the whole family to enjoy, a petting farm and lots and lots of brilliant entertainment.

Oh and how could we truly bring the nostalgic delights of the seaside to the races without a beach? Well we’ve got that covered too! This weekend only you’ll find a sandy beach full of Butlin’s very own buckets and spades on the Goodwood estate. Time to make a sandcastle, I say!

Over the weekend we’ll be hosting a competition across our Twitter channel. All you have to do is come and find us at Goodwood and pose for a picture behind one of our frames. Send it to us @butlins and use the hashtag #ButlinsAtGoodwood. The winner will win a family break for 4 at our Butlin’s Bognor Regis resort and will be chosen after the weekend. For full T&Cs see below.

Good luck and happy snapping!
