A beautifully illustrated guide to the city and surrounding area

Chichester is nestled beside the clear blue sea of Wittering’s beaches and Chichester Harbour, a designated area of outstanding Natural Beauty and one of the few remaining relatively wild and undeveloped areas along the bustling South Coast.

Further north, the chalk hills of the South Downs National Park encompass both fertile farmland and ancient woodland, providing diverse habitats. Chichester District, once used as ancient humans’ hunting ground and the site of military invasion, now continues to draw sailors, walkers and creatives alike to experience its rich heritage and beautiful countryside. This informative guide takes in the wonderful sites that this coastal city has to offer, as well as attractions nearby.

Also available in this series: Bath, Cambridge, Edinburgh, Ely, Glasgow, Lincoln, Liverpool, Norwich, Oxford, York.
