This is a beautiful county, with its stately homes, bustling market towns, glorious countryside, historic villages and award-winning beaches. The county town of Chichester is one of the finest smaller cathedral cities in the country. The Romans were responsible for its original layout and the city walls date from these times, though it also boasts some splendid examples of late-18th and early-19th century architecture. Chichester is fortunate in being located between two Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty - the rolling hills of the South Downs and the natural harbour which takes its name. These inter-tidal waters can be found just a few miles to the south of the city. The nearby resorts of Bognor Regis and Littlehampton have award-winning beaches and all the facilities a family might need for a fun, safe day at the seaside. Both have sea-front amusement parks.

These range from landscaped parks and woodland estates to intimate walled gardens, formal garden 'rooms' and wild, romantic grottoes.
