The world's greatest celebration of motorsport and car culture! Held in the beautiful parkland surrounding Goodwood House, the Festival of Speed is motorsport's ultimate summer garden party, an intoxicating celebration of the world's most glamorous sport. Nowhere else will you get so close to the cars and bikes as they blast up the Hillclimb track; nowhere else will you enjoy such unrestricted access to the machines and the drivers who made them famous.
Entry to STEAM Museum, Entry to a full day at Goodwood Festival of Speed, Entry to Haynes International Motor Museum.
After a morning departure we begin our journey to Southampton visiting the Haynes International Motor Museum - the UK's largest collection of the greatest cars from around the world with over 400 amazing cars and bikes from the dawn of motoring in the late 1800s through nostalgic classics of the 1950s and 1960s, glorious Bentleys and Rolls Royces to world renowned super cars like the Jaguar XJ220. We continue our journey to our hotel arriving in time for our evening meal.
After breakfast, we travel to Goodwood House to be part of a very special motoring event. The main feature of the Festival is the 'Hillclimb' featuring rare and priceless cars going up one by one, often with celebrities either driving or sitting in the passenger seat. Each year, the event welcomes the world's biggest car manufactures who attempt to outdo each other with ever more elaborate stands, activities and star appearances. Across the site there are F1 cars, motorbikes and aviation and air displays, all adding up to a spectacular fun-filled day.
After breakfast, we visit the STEAM Museum, housed in a beautifully restored Grade II railway building in the heart of the former Swindon railway works. Situated right opposite the Swindon Designer Outlet, the museum tells the story of the men and women who built, operated and travelled on the Great Western Railway, often referred to by historians and railway fans as 'God's Wonderful Railway'. After the visit we will journey back to West Wales making a comfort stop on route.
