Unique Gifts and Things To Do in ChichesterChichester is a city steeped in history and is believed to have played a significant role during the Roman Invasion of Britain in 43A.D. - evidence of military structures can still be visited today, at the beautifully preserved Fisbourne Roman Palace, the largest known Roman settlement in the UK. The city plan itself can also be attributed to the Romans, with its North, South, East, and West shopping streets branching out from the centre market Cross. If it is a historical day out that you are looking for, then a visit to the Cathedral Church of the Holy Trinity is surely at the top of the list of things to do…wander through the 900 year old chapels and explore the incredible collection of art and history, or take a guided tour for some specialist insights. Leaving the Cathedral Cloisters behind, visitors to Chichester can take a leisurely stroll through the city’s cobbled streets to enjoy the many shopping and dining opportunities.
Chichester is also home to the Goodwood estate - famed as being the UKs premium sporting venue, there are a host of seasonal Horseracing and Motor Racing events scheduled into the calendar, as well as year-round leisure pursuits such as Golfing and Shooting. If you are a motoring enthusiast, then you’ll have the chance to follow in the footsteps of driving legends such as Sir Stirling Moss and Sir Jackie Stewart at the Festival of Speed or with a supercar driving experience in a Porsche or Ferrari. Or perhaps you’d rather take to the skies for an unforgettable flying lesson with a fighter pilot, or experience a helicopter trial flight over the Goodwood Estate…whatever you choose, your day out will be one to remember!
Nestled between the countryside and the coast, Chichester’s surrounding towns and landscapes provide the perfect location for a range of outdoor and adventure activities. The rolling hills of the South Downs provide ideal terrain for a spot of off-roading and buggy driving, whilst the harbour-side villages of West Wittering and Bosham offer watersport activities and a chance to relax on golden sandy beaches.
So whether you are looking to visit Chichester for a sporting weekend, or are searching for an activity gift for a loved one, with Experience Days there is a day out to suit everyone.
