Qatar Goodwood Festival is one of the highlights of the flat racing season and exudes informal elegance. King Edward VII once described Goodwood as ‘a garden party with racing tacked on’. Glorious Goodwood, as it is known, is renowned for its more relaxed racedays, but hats and fashion are still an essential part of the mid-summer day at the races. It really is one of the world’s most beautiful racecourses, with world-class horse racing, Pimms by the paddock, panamas for the gents, and beautiful hats for the ladies.
Ladies Day is Thursday 1st August 2018.
