An image of Chichester Harbour from Itchenor, West Sussex
Famed for its sailing, the picturesque village of Itchenor sits on the Eastern shoreline of Chichester Habour. Itchenor is the perfect base from which to discover more of the Harbour, with the tiny Itchenor Ferry connecting the village to Bosham for endless walking and cycling possibilities.

Chichester Harbour Conservancy is based in the village, the organisation which looks after the Harbour for recreation, leisure, and nature conservation, and is responsible for the safety of navigation. The Conservancy’s Solar Heritage is a near silent, solar-powered catamaran which runs regular harbour tours, and offers a chance for visitors to get closer to the harbour’s wildlife and habitats.
