About

Goodwood

Goodwood is a suburb of Cape Town in the Western Cape, South Africa and is situated in the Tygerberg region of the City of Cape Town. It is 10 kilometres from Cape Town and accessible from the N1, N7 and N2 highways.

The town was established in 1905 and named after Goodwood Racecourse in England as the founders intended to make it a racing centre. A course was actually constructed, but after only one meeting it was abandoned. The first railway station was built in 1905, and today there are five within the municipal area: Goodwood, Vasco and Elsies River. These all lie on the Cape Town-Johannesburg main line. It also has Monte Vista and Acasia Park station which is on the secondary line between Cape Town and Bellville.
