Goodwood Revival & other great days out

From Goodwood Revival to a day at the races . . . get out and explore

Sit back, relax and be entertained with an end-of-season break and a chance to unwind in a stunning coastal setting at Bunn Leisure.

 

The holiday park on the beautiful Selsey peninsula in West Sussex is the ideal base to get out and explore once the crowds have left and the schools are back.

All you need is an Indian summer or some sunny autumn days and it's the best time to enjoy being out and about. Enjoy long seaside walks while the beaches are empty and you won't have to stand in line to queue at local attractions. It's five-star customer service all the way, which is why the we have won top prizes in Tourism South East's Beautiful South awards for Excellence for four years running. Our full calendar of £1.5 million-a-season entertainment, live shows, competition size pool with aqua aerobics, sauna and range of sports courts will give you plenty to do while onsite restaurants make dining a treat.

Choose from four holiday villages, then head out to a wealth of nearby attractions at charming Chichester, seaside Brighton, nautical Portsmouth and the beautiful South Downs National Park for great days out. Or base your stay around performances by Motown's Martha Reeves & The Vandellas on September 20, Eurovision winners Brotherhood of Man on November 8 and Irish international platinum selling Rose-Marie on November 22.

Try our ten top tips for perfect places to discover:

A day at the races

Goodwood is home to one of England's most famous racecourses, set high on the stunning Sussex Downs for a high class day out. Midweek racing runs from on September 24 with an exciting autumn season finale on October 12. It's the perfect way to share a fantastic day.

Taste a beer . . . or two

The biggest beer festival in East Sussex comes to Eastbourne's Winter Garden on October 10 to 12. Try from a range of more than 160 real cask ales on tap, from quirky named brews to award-winners specially chosen by CAMRA members. And if beer's not your thing, there's also wine and cider bars and a range of international bottled beers to choose from instead.

Nautical Portsmouth

Portsmouth's Historic Dockyard is the home of the Royal Navy as well as some of its most treasured ships. Tour HMS Victory, HMS Warrior and the £27 million new Mary Rose Museum which has won top awards for its exciting design. You can almost touch Nelson's flagship which was saved from the sea as you view 19,000 of its rescued artefacts and imagine life on board.

Goodwood Revival

For a chance to dress up, Goodwood Revival on September 12 to 14 revels in the glamour and allure of motor racing in the time capsule of Goodwood Motor Circuit. Remember the styles of the Forties, Fifties and Sixties and join motor sport luminaries Sir Stirling Moss, John Surtees and Derek Bell in a celebration of flat-out wheel-to-wheel racing around a classic racetrack. It's a sight not to be missed!

Crab and cockles

If you like seafood, Selsey is known for its crab and boasts some of the best seafood in the British Isles. Enjoy cockles on the beach or go for a full-blown dining experience at a choice of local restaurants.

Shopping heaven

This is shopping that even the men won't mind, with a wander around the coast-side retail outlet Gunwharf Quays at Portsmouth. Find the bargains at its top brand stores before indulging in a treat at its choice of 30 restaurants, bars and coffee shops.

A natural find

A new royal Society for the Protection of Birds nature reserve scheme on Bunn Leisure's doorstep has created a network of cycle paths and walking routes to explore. Get up close to nature and spot rare birds, water voles, great crested newts and reptiles . . . or just enjoy the panoramic viewpoints along the way.

Charming Chichester

Hop on a free bus from Bunn Leisure to find the hidden delights of charming Chichester. Visit its impressive cathedral and wander around its wealth of boutique shops in a relaxing, pretty, traditional setting for leisurely shopping at its best.

Blow away the cobwebs

A £17 million coastal protection project has created a new golden beach on the waterfront at Bunn Leisure. Make the most of the bigger, better beach and blow away the cobwebs with miles of stunning coastline to discover.

Late summer or early autumn breaks at Bunn Leisure start at £151 for 3, 4 and 7 night breaks for up to six people.
