The village still offers a good selection of local shops together with parish church, village school and a number of public houses.

Road communication to London via the A3 has been recently much improved by the opening of the Hindhead tunnel. The surrounding countryside offers a wide range of sporting and recreational facilities including walking and riding in the nearby South Downs, now a National Park, and some of the best sailing facilities within convenient distance of London. There are a number of sailing clubs to choose from, most notably at Emsworth, Bosham, Chichester Marina, Itchenor and Hayling Island. Goodwood is already well known for horse racing but also provides a members club, golf courses and plays host to the Festival of Speed and Revival of its historic motor circuit.
