Where you’ll be

Chichester, England, United Kingdom

THE LOCAL AREA

We’re spoilt for choice when it comes to ‘things to do’. Chichester and its surrounding area offer a wealth of options, from local walks, knock-out pubs, world class art & theatre, and the abundance of the Goodwood estate. It’ll be a challenge to fit it all in in a single trip. A lovely and rather indulgent challenge, but a challenge nonetheless…

Walking:

The Fields On Our Doorstep: Straight out of the gate, turn right at the church, past the barns & then hang a left. That will then take you onto the farmland, and the network of footpaths and tracks that weave amongst the fields of the Manhood Peninsula.

Down The Canal: Walk down Church Lane and turn right through Hunston, joining the canal path at the end of the village. Head right towards the centre of Chichester, taking in Turner’s View of Chichester Cathedral as you go (approx. 25 mins). Head left towards Chichester Marina and the harbour beyond it (approx. 55 mins).

Heading To The Beach: West Wittering Beach is a 15 minute drive away. One of England’s finest beaches, and deserving of it’s worldwide reputation. Be cautious of summer traffic though, it can be dreadful. We would recommend making a trip at the crack of dawn or later in the evening during those summer months. Nearby Church Norton is a lovely alternative if it’s looking busy out there.

Up To The Downs: The South Downs are a 15 minute drive away. The Trundle offers a lovely walk with spectacular views over the south coast and the Solent, often all the way to the Isle of Wight. Other good set off spots include West Dean, and Charleton, with footpaths running up to the South Downs Way, for the ambitious amongst you.



Museums | Theatres | Galleries:

Pallant House is a world class gallery in the centre of Chichester with an engaging permanent collection, and an inspired rotation of visiting exhibitions. The architecture of the building is worth a visit in itself, and the café is excellent too.

Chichester Festival Theatre has played host to a wonderful array of productions, positioning itself as one of the principal launch pads for shows that end up on London’s West End. Catch an evening performance, or a matinee, before the critics do their thing & those tickets become rarities.

The Weald and Downland Open Air Museum is a wonderful living museum in Singleton. It comprises of a series of immaculately restored historic buildings, nestled amongst the hills of the South Downs. Make your way up there (via a stroll on The Trundle) to immerse yourself in rural history, ancient architectural techniques, local storytelling, and to feed the ducks.


Pubs | Restaurants | Cafes

The Spotted Cow, Hunston: Walk down the lane for an easy pint in the local. Good beers, extensive gin selection, friendly staff, decent seasonal grub.

The Blacksmiths Arms, Donnington: Another local staple, walkable along the canal path (25 mins, towards the marina), or a 5 minute drive away. Great food.

The Crown & Anchor, Dell Quay: Our local favourite, right on the waters of Chichester Harbour. Busy when the sun shines, and deservedly so. Sit outside to enjoy the view & the spoils of the Crab Shack, or cosy up inside for great seafood & local atmosphere.

The Lamb, West Wittering: An excellent spot en route to West Wittering Beach. Wholesome grub, tasty pints in a relaxed and friendly setting.

The Crab & Lobster, Pagham Harbour: A gastro-pub of the highest order, and certainly more of a restaurant than a pub. Excellent food whenever we’ve indulged in a trip.

Farmer, Butcher, Chef, Goodwood Estate: Goodwood’s fantastic restaurant, stocked by their award winning farm. Settle into the comfortable space & be well looked after as generous dishes appear in front of you.

Crouchers Hotel & Restaurant, Apuldram: Look beyond the questionable carpet in the reception area, and this restaurant has always surpassed our expectation with brilliant food and warm, personable service. Their taster menu is one of the best we’ve had the pleasure of indulging in.

Cider House Kitchen Pizzeria, Apuldram: Just down the road from Crouchers is a brilliant pizzeria serving wood-fired pizzas & fresh pasta. They’ll do a takeaway too if you just fancy scooping up your grub & heading back to eat in the garden.

Thyme & Chillies Indian, Apuldram: A real treat to have such a good Indian just down the road. An interesting, well considered menu, freshly cooked & always a winner. Another takeaway option if you don’t fancy the full Indian restaurant experience.

Three Veg At Samphire: An excellent friendly little restaurant down in East Wittering. Exceptional vegetarian meals alongside meat or fish specials. Something a little different and definitely worth visit.

Billy’s On The Beach, Bracklesham Bay: A bustly beachside café cracking out brilliant brunches, excellent fish & chips, & seaside sharing platters. Another one that gets good & busy on a sunny day, but well worth a trip, combined with a dip in the sea or a walk along the beach to watch the surfers.
