The cathedral city of Chichester is fast becoming one of the UK’s favourite staycation locations. Packed with activities for young and old, and just a short drive from the beach, Chichester provides a holiday spot for all to enjoy.
At Finishing Touch Holidays, we are working hard to develop a selection of holiday properties for you to browse in West Sussex. Whether you are travelling with extended family, or you want a couples’ getaway, we have the perfect accommodation solution for you.
But before we tell you a little bit more about our Chichester holiday accommodation options, let’s delve into what Chichester has to offer holidaymakers.
Chichester Activities and Attractions
Chichester is a thriving city with plenty of attractions and activities. The cathedral is a huge draw in itself, featuring dramatic stained glass windows and unique medieval architectural elements, it tops the list for many visitors.
However, if that doesn’t interest you there are plenty of other attractions that may pique your interest. For instance, Chichester has a huge concentration of diverse museums. There’s the Novium Museum, which is built upon the remains of a roman bathhouse and has an ever-changing lineup of exhibits and also the Fishbourne Roman Palace.
Suppose history isn’t your cup of tea. In that case, you could take yourself (and your children) to the South Downs Planetarium and Science Museum or head further afield to the Tangmere Military & Aviation Museum.
There’s also plenty of art galleries to waste away a rainy day, or experience the sights and sounds of Chichester Festival Theatre. The possibilities are almost endless, making Chichester a firm favourite.
Using Chichester As a Base for Your Staycation
If you fancy mixing and matching a city break with a beach holiday, then Chichester represents the perfect place to pull this off. Beaches are just a short drive away, so you can easily spend the day with the sand in between your toes should you want to. The most popular spots include Hayling Island, West Wittering Beach and East Head.
If getting out into nature and connecting with wildlife is on your holiday checklist, then Chichester Harbour provides exactly what you are looking for. As a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB), this is the place to stretch your legs along the coastal path, spend time birdwatching, or relax with a coffee in one of the local cafés as you watch the boats go by.
Next, Chichester provides an excellent base for attending events taking place at Goodwood, such as the Festival of Speed, Goodwood Revival or Glorious Goodwood. There are regular events held within the grounds of Goodwood house too, such as outdoor cinema screenings. No matter the reason for your Goodwood visit, we have plenty of properties that are less than ten minutes away.
