Guide to Visiting Chichester

Cosmopolitan, fashionably elegant and unashamedly quirky, this magnificent city centre is made for exploring with its unique nooks and crannies. At its heart lies the Tudor Market Cross and Norman Cathedral surrounded by a host of independent shops, designer label boutiques, stylish restaurants and pavement cafés. Ancient circular walls surround the city with four major thoroughfares which intersect at the central Tudor Market Cross, providing not just a compass point for North, South, East and West streets but also a focal point and resting spot for busy visitors.The magnificent Cathedral, with its spire dominating the skyline, combines historic architecture with a varied and world-famous collection of modern art, including in its treasures a window by Marc Chagall and a John Piper tapestry.

Chichester’s award winning Pallant House Gallery showcases some of the country’s best collections of 20th Century British art. Galleries display work by Peter Blake, Lucian Freud, Walter Sickert, Richard Hamilton and many more. Likewise, the University’s Otter Gallery boasts a distinguished collection of 20th century British art, supported by a number of private galleries in the city with a range of collections.

As one of the leading producing houses in the country, Chichester Festival Theatre presents stellar casts in a mix of new drama, Shakespeare, musicals and comedy. Plus enjoy music, dance and theatre throughout the year; with festivities and entertainment ranging from open air concerts and the Real Ale and JazzFestival, to the varied programme of the Festival of Chichester taking place this year 15 June – 14 July.

Wander along to The Guildhall, once part of a grand Franciscan Friary that stood in Priory Park and discover the history of Chichester at The Novium, the City’s newest major attraction which takes us back to where it all began – with the remains of a Roman bath house.
