Description of Garden

At Goodwood a visitor will find a 24 acre site enclosed on two sides by an historic listed flint wall. It contains a changing collection of contemporary British sculpture in a very beautiful setting on the South Downs overlooking Chichester. There are now over 70 large-scale works and over the past 10 years, the owners have commissioned more than 100 large-scale sculptures from over 120 British artists. Every year around a third of the works move on to new homes around the world, making room for new commissions.

History Of Garden

Victor Shanley, the designer worked with forester Peter Harland and grounds manager Martin Russell to design the garden. They have devised an on-going plan of woodland renewal with native species of broad-leaf trees, adding to the diversity of stock and providing background colours that change with the seasons.
