Dress Codes

What to wear

A week at Goodwood provides the perfect opportunity for those looking to experiment with the latest addition to their wardrobe. The festival is also one of the few places where it is possible to go all out with your choice of hat - whether elaborate or elegant. For the ladies, an effortless, yet vibrant summer look is a popular choice, perhaps a summer wedding outfit. For the gents, a smart, yet relaxed look is recommended. Although only compulsory in the Richmond Enclosure, a jacket and tie are encouraged. However, whatever attire you choose, be sure to feel comfortable - after all, Goodwood is one of the most photographed events of the year. It is important to note that while the Lennox Enclosure is the most relaxed, bare chests and fancy dress are not permitted. Gentlemen are also strongly discouraged from wearing shorts and sleeveless tops in the Gordon enclosure, whilst no jeans are allowed in the Richmond Enclosure.
