Sightseeing & Guided Tours
Knowledge is power - never truer than when you're exploring somewhere new, helping you get the most out of your holiday or weekend break. A little local knowledge can reveal hidden gems reserved for only those who know where to look, whether you're a devoted walker or wildlife enthusiast, a history buff or cyclist looking for that next awesome route.
Here at The Great Sussex Way we highly recommend a guided tour. Lead by expert guides you'll discover the stories of the city of Chichester or perhaps the historic market town of Arundel, famous for its imposing Castle and Cathedral. You'll see beyond bricks and mortar and uncover those little details which are easily missed. As well as guided location tours, maybe you'll delve into a backstage tour of Chichester Festival Theatre and see what goes into staging a production, or maybe you'll join a tour of Chichester Cathedral during which friendly guides help enhance your visit.
Guided experiences make great gift experiences, creating memories which last a lifetime.
The Great Outdoors
The coastline south of Chichester features several important sites for wildlife. Let a specialist lead the way as you discover the huge variety of wetland birds which make their homes among the mudlats and saltmarshes or RSPB Pagham Harbour Nature Reserve or at locations around Chichester Harbour, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) and Sight of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI). Looking a little closer, with your guide, meet the residents of Selsey’s shoreline on a marine life tour – there’s another world here hidden in plain sight.
From guided tours of the South Downs Way, which crosses our sunny patch of Sussex, to shorter explorations of local routes across a range of different terrain, let your mountain bike guide show you the ropes on a route to suit, whether you’re a novice or dedicated cyclist.
