Chichester Business Guide
& Chichester Town Guide
With a population of just around 24,000 people, Chichester is a relatively small cathedral city in the county of West Sussex. Chichester is one of only six single civil parish areas to be given the status of a city
Chichester is a Roman town and the city housed the Roman Palace of Fishbourne. The city is believed to have been captured around the fifth century and was the chief city of the Kingdom of Sussex. The city still has the original cross shaped layout. These spread towards the medieval market cross and the shopping streets to the north, south, east and west.
Chichester still has many of the original city walls in place and some parts can still be walked on. In around 80AD an amphitheatre was believed to have been constructed but this is now buried under a park.
Chichester Cathedral is a popular location for locals and tourists. The cathedral contains a shrine to Saint Richard of Chichester and is dedicated to the Holy Trinity. The Cathedral needed reconstruction work in the 19th century when the stone spire collapsed.
Chichester has a vibrant theatre scene and is home to the Chichester Festival Theatre. Each summer the theatre attracts many well known and respected writers, directors and actors.
Chichester has several sports teams including the rugby club Chichester R.F.C, Chichester City United and the Chichester Sharks Flag American Football Club.
