Nestled in the stunning South Downs and home to a magnificent 12th-century cathedral, Chichester is the only true city in West Sussex. It boasts a large number of Grade I and Grade II listed buildings as well as some of the oldest churches in Great Britain.
The street plan of Chichester has been inherited from the Romans with the main shopping streets still radiating to the four points of the compass from the central market cross.
Today it hosts a wonderful range of independent retailers, from Hansfords - who have been in Chichester since 1958 - to other newer traders, all of whom are able to offer a personal and high quality individual service. It is the eclectic mix of independent shops, restaurants and services that keeps Chichester's high street interesting, vibrant and, above all, unique.
