A eight day fully escorted self-drive tour by to the world’s
premier classic motoring event
You will stay in two four-star hotels set in exquisite settings with visits to RHS Wisley Gardens, Brooklands Museum and Williams F1 factory. You will be with travel companions of like-minded people with an interest in classic motoring and relaxed touring. You can depart and arrive from your hotel each day in your own car and in your own time as every day’s itinerary is plotted on our GPS units that will lead you through the day’s attractions and finally to your hotel each evening.
Although this tour is a simpler and less time intensive version of our Gold tour the cost is dominated by the full three days at Goodwood which is exactly the same as offered on the Gold Tour with Grandstand seats on all 3 days to allow you to experience Goodwood Revival to the full. We see little benefit on reducing any aspects of the Revival when this is the main objective of the tour.
Motor Events: Goodwood Revival, Brooklands Museum, Williams F1 factory tour.
National Monuments: Windsor Castle.
Gardens: Royal Horticultural Society Wisley.

The Tour Hotels:
The Oakley Court Hotel – Windsor
The Oakley Court is a quintessential country house hotel, on the banks of the River Thames. This beautiful location is only a short drive away from London and Heathrow Airport.
Hilton Avisford Park – Goodwood
Elegant Hilton Avisford Park, Arundel, this quintessential Georgian manor house, is set in 89 acres beautiful English countryside between Chichester (Goodwood, six miles) and historic Arundel.
Goodwood Revival is held historically on the second weekend of September, but not confirmed until the previous September, and the tour date would move to accommodate this.
About Backwater Tours:
We have been organising car tours since 2008 and have reputation for attention to detail, Quality locations and tour books, all tours are escorted. With particular regard to the Goodwood revival tour we are based only a few miles from the motor circuit and are full members of GRRC (Goodwood Road Racing Club). When selecting your tour provider check the small print, how far is the base hotel from the motor circuit as our hotel is only six miles from the circuit, not as some tours which are at least three quarters of an hour each way and in heavy event traffic.
Each car is provided with a GPS programmed with each day’s route to take you down the most scenic way to the day’s highlights and your hotel each evening.
