Situated on the River Lavant on the South Downs the Roman City of Chichester is one of the area’s most popular tourist destinations. The wealth of historic sites in and around the City make it ideal for short breaks or long stays. Either way visitors will never run short of things to see and do. With twenty-seven miles of navigable water within the surrounding countryside it is a virtual paradise for the yachting and boating fraternity. As you would imagine the marinas are world class with facilities that cover practically every need you may have, from shower blocks to laundrette, clubhouse to restaurant not to mention 24hr marine services. It is no wonder one of the marinas has earned Five Gold Anchors - the Yacht Harbour Association's most coveted award.
The town itself is a fascinating, vibrant hub packed with exciting shops, friendly cafes, fine restaurants and cosy pubs. The attractions are almost overwhelming; with historic buildings everywhere you look. Chichester also prides itself on the quality of its entertainment with music being top of the list. From classical to rock you’ll find every kind of music, with the calendar highlight being Chichester’s famous jazz festival.
The surrounding countryside is idyllic with abundant heritage sites and parklands to explore. Outward-bound types will have a proverbial field day whilst naturalists and ornithologists will leave feeling qualified to write an entire book on their chosen hobbies. Whatever your interest or age Chichester has something to offer you. It is no wonder so many visitors return time and time again.
