So looking forward to this event. Accommodation looks a challenge, found a 4 bed house in Portsmouth for good price, any suggestions on ticket packet options ?

Whatever the event I'd look for accommodation to the North West of Goodwood, lot's of beautiful countryside and generally an easier journey in to the events if coming by car, look for a nice pub/ B&B in one of the villages around Petersfield which is about 25 mins from Goodwood if you go in early

This. We stayed at The Robin Hood Inn in Rowlands Castle. Lovely 20 min drive through the countryside every day and no queues. Cheap too!

Would agree about the nicer places to stay being just to the North but, there are only three minor roads in and they tend to get snarled up. The problem with Portsmouth is you have to use the Chichester ring road, loads of roundabouts which, again, get very busy. There are plenty of nice places to the East that allow you to come in on the A27 which is big enough to cope with more traffic. Of course, finding somewhere might be tricky.

Having said that, if you plan to get there when the gates open, at 07:30 you shouldn't have any trouble from anywhere, you're coming a long way to see it so may as well make the most of your trip. Leaving has been pretty easy in recent years too, with "over the road", there's plenty going on until late at night so it's no longer a case of everyone leaving after the last race. I left at around 19:30-8pm this year and was on clear roads within 5-10 minutes.

Anywhere nearby will be full or overpriced now the dates have been released.

If you're staying in Portsmouth get the train to Chichester and taxi in from there.

Not a bad idea, they also run an all day shuttle bus from Chichester station 0700-2300 (https://www.goodwood.com/motorsport/goodwood-revival/getting-here/), bus is £7.50 return (it's Goodwood!) but would leave you free to have a tipple if you wanted.

Booking.com cancelled our booking for the 4 bed house in Portsmouth so we booked The Village Inn, just south of Petersfield 20 minutes from the Track. Looks a wonderful place. As I understand it still a few rooms left as of 27th September 2019

http://www.villageinnburiton.co.uk/

Thanks for all the suggestions.

That's the way the AA Route Planner suggests.

Sounds great, sadly I'm not bringing my Caterham, I'm guessing we'll be in some people mover. Still by the look of the road whatever it is we are in it will probably get thrashed within an inch of its life.

Hope the sun comes out for you, did the Revival a few years back and it was glorious, a bit sweaty in the period costume though.

What are you going as?
