Be immersed in the stories of the district at the Novium Museum, where the remains of a Roman bath house are exposed. An eclectic mixture of independent stores and big-name favourites line the streets, offering plenty of browsing for those in need of retail therapy. Vibrant green parks and hidden gardens offer peaceful retreats for the busy shopper or sight see-er, while bars, cafes and restaurants offer an assortment of refreshments and culinary experiences.
Overlooking the bustling city, Chichester Cathedral stands proud as a place of worship since its foundation in 1108. Inside, experience some of its 900 years of history, as well as contemporary art, medieval sculpture and Victorian glass work.
A short walk from the city centre, visitors can explore Chichester Canal. Tranquil strolls along the towpath reveal some of the abundant wildlife that makes the Canal home. In warmer months, scheduled daily boat trips aboard one of the narrow boats cruise the calm waters two miles to the South, as well as seasonal special charter trips.
