Chichester once a Roman city, still retains its roman layout with a walled area with four streets. Parts of the wall remain today. Famed for its cathedral started in 1091, Chichester has many examples of late 18th and early 19th century architecture. The city centre is packed with buildings ranging from the Georgian Houses of the Pallants to the Guildhall in Priory Park. Today, Chichester is the prosperous administrative capital of West Sussex. Come rain or shine, there's plenty to do in Chichester with its Roman villas, art galleries, historic houses, theatres and parks and the pedestrianised city centre is neatly enclosed within the ancient city walls. This makes the town centre pleasant and compact to explore on foot. Chichester would be a great way to enjoy the South Downs which are only a few miles north of Chichester.
