Visit Chichester West Sussex and the surrounding villages and stay in B&B, hotel or self catering cottage accommodation provided by BedPosts members.
The Romans founded Chichester (calling it Regnum) at the intersection of two important roads, a point now marked by the beautiful 16th century Butter Cross. The site of the Roman amphitheatre is at the east end of the town. The Normans built Chichester Cathedral on the site of a Saxon church; two sculptures in the north choir aisle are almost certainly Saxon work. Note the striking picture by Graham Sutherland, the cope designed by John Piper and modern glass by Christopher Webb in the north aisle. In St Martin's Square is the almshouse known as St Mary's Hospital, a lovely 13th century building which stands almost as built. The 15th century church of St Andrew's contains the grave of the poet William Collins, who died here in madness in 1759; and in the medieval Guildhall, William Blake, the great artist and poet, was tried for high treason in 1804 and acquitted. A modern structure of more than usual interest is the theatre built in 1962 for the Festival. Chichester ‘harbour’ is an extensive inlet from the sea reaching from Chichester across to Hayling Island; a wonderful stretch of water for small-boat sailing, full of delightful creeks and protected from the sea swell by a narrow entrance with a shallow sand ‘bar’.
