The City of Chichester
City of Chichester has a central district that comprises a number of
shops, markets, bars, restaurants and tourist attractions. There are a
number of well known high street brand including Marks and Spencer,
Army and Navy, Woolworth's and many others. The bars and restaurants
deliver a variety of experiences, from value for money (J.D Wetherspoon
is sited in the old Dolphin and Anchor Hotel, opposite the cathedral)
to the high profile. There are outdoor and indoor markets.
||The main district centres on the Market Cross, which was erected in 1501 [pictured above].
The key streets then run in the four directions of the compass, namely
North street, East Street, South Street and West Street. Running from
the south-eastern region are smaller Georgian 'pallants.' The city
centre itself is best explored on foot, so it is recommended that you
park locally and wander in. Prior Park, located to the north-west of
Chichester city centre, is a pleasant spot for a stroll or picnic.
main attraction is of course its cathedral. However, the site itself
has more to investigate than the main historic building. There are
pleasant cottages, and well maintained gardens surrounding it, so head
out of South Street into Canon Lane, and on into the Bishop's Garden.
