 The Goodwood Revival
The romance and glamour of motor racing as it used to be. The Revival is the only historic race meeting to be staged entirely in period dress and is a return to the halcyon days of Goodwood as the spiritual home of British motor racing. It’s an unabashed celebration of flat-out wheel-to-wheel racing around the sweeps and curves of this classic circuit, which remains unchanged since its heyday.

Now the worlds most celebrated historic motor racing event, it attracts a host of famous drivers and celebrity participants each year. The kinds of cars that appeared then are brought back to race today, including gleaming Ferraris, Aston Martins, Porsches and Mercedes Silver Arrows.

 

  DAY THREE
Sunday:
After breakfast our coach will transfer you from the Rubens at the Palace Hotel to the Imperial War Museum at historical Duxford Aerodrome for a nostalgic 60-minute flight over our capital city in a vintage de Havilland Dragon Rapide airliner.

Commercial flying was in its infancy in the thirties and the Rapide quickly became one of the most commonly used aircraft in regular service by airlines throughout the world. Its aeronautical heritage was greatly enhanced when HRH Prince Edward took delivery of two of these aircraft in 1936.

You will fly over the beautiful rolling countryside of Cambridgeshire, Hertfordshire and the Lee Valley to London. Each of the eight seats on board has a large window, offering panoramic views of Londons iconic monuments including; Canary Wharf, Tower Bridge, HMS Belfast, the London Eye, the Shard and Buckingham Palace*.

A 60-minute pleasure flight in a vintage DH Rapide airliner over central London on Sunday morning.

This historic Battle of Britain fighter station has played an important role through the history of aviation from WWI and WWII to the present day. You can visit the seven exhibition hangars displaying a world most famous collections of civil and military aircraft including Concorde, an SR-71 Blackbird and a Lancaster Bomber. A comprehensive range of military vehicles and tanks are also on display in its Land Warfare Hall.
