Sporting Experiences

If you love taking part or watching sport, Sussex has a huge selection of fabulous sporting events and activities, here are just a few..

The Polo at Cowdray

Cowdray Park is recognised as the home of British Polo

Watch fast and furious polo matches throughout the season in this glorious setting with the South Downs and Cowdray Ruins as a back-drop.

Cowdray Park Polo is the home of British Polo and spectators are encouraged to bring a picnic and make a day of it.

Distance from The Spread Eagle - 2 miles

Wander up St Ann's Hill to the Ruins and enjoy the view of Cowdray and the polo fields before enjoying some home-made cake in their delightful farm shop

The Goodwood Estate

Home to the Duke of Richmond and Gordon

Goodwood is home to many sell-out and spectacular events such as the internationally reknowned Festival of Speed, the classic horse racing Glorious and the wonderfully vintage Revival but there are many other ways to experience the estate throughout the year:

Breakfast Club Sunday morning meet & it's free!

Three Friday Nights Seriously good dancing, tunes & horse-racing

Family Race Day Action-packed and fun for everyone

Watch the planes taking off and landing at Goodwood Aerodrome - you can go at anytime and get really up-close

Cycling in the South Downs

The South Downs has trails for every kind of cyclist to enjoy and explore. As well as the famous South Downs Way there are 1,200 km of car-free bridleways across the National Park, miles of leafy country lanes and old railway trails including the Downs Link and Centurion Way.

Centurion Way: five miles of disused railway path from West Dean to Chichester is brilliant for a family bike ride
