    We took a tour & it was an amazing experience.
    We had such a lovely afternoon at Goodwood house.
    What an impressive building. From the minute we entered the house we were transported back to a time of opulence & grandeur.
    The staff were all lovely especially Emily in the tea room.
    She actualy enhanced our visit by making us feel so special.
    Even the young security guy we spoke to as we left was so happy to tell us a little more about the house to add to our knowledge.
    Thank you for choosing such beautiful staff who made our visit so memorable.
    We will never forget it & will definately return.

    So much to see and do in such a small area - the Cathedral, the Town Walls, the Bishop's Palace Gardens, the Market Cross plus every conceivable well known shop and plenty of good eateries.
    The only downside is the exorbitant cost of parking in all of the car parks.

    Although the walls are not complete, many large chunks still remain. It provides a pleasant and thought provoking walk. Information boards are dotted along and gives history dating back to around 300AD.

    An amazingly intricately carved structure in the centre of Chichester where the four main roads meet near the Cathedral. Erected in about 1500, made from Caen limestone, the more you examine it, the more there is to see.

    Holy Trinity Church is located near the South Downs national park/Chichester Harbour. The church has a fascinating history that dates back to the seventh century. Well worth a visit if you are in Bosham.

    First Sunday in the month sees the Breakfast Club at the Goodwood home of Motorsport. The whole site is maintained immaculately and you really feel you have stepped back in time to the original circuit. The Sunday morning Breakfast Club rotates different themes with this meet focusing on owners cars of 80’s/90’s from super cars to Volvo estates!. Great atmosphere of car enthusiasts. Really well organise with parking in fields opposite entrance with lots of places to get food and drink. The site also has a skid pan you can book and the airfield has a flying school and vintage aircraft flight experiences including original Spitfire flights. Great way to spend a Sunday morning. Highly recommended if you love your cars.

    We love this place. It has a broad selection films showing plus many community activities like yoga art etc It’s small and friendly. There is a cafe /bar area you can sit in prior to the film which is good if you wish to meet up with friends prior to the film .

    Walking down St John's St on our way into the town we came across St John's Chapel. A real surprise to find what seems to be an unspoiled 18th century place of worship, unlike most chapels we have visited.

    A lovely old Signal box, built 1882 for the London, Brighton & South Coast Railway on the Brighton and Portsmouth Railway. Well worth a visit.

    Dating from 1749-50 St. Pancras Parish Church is described in a list of Sussex parish churches as a small flint church replacing a medieval predecessor and designed by the Duke of Richmond’s surveyor S. Ride and built at a cost of over £1,000 in excess of its original budget of £804 11s 2d. A north aisle was added in 1868. Today it describes itself as a friendly Anglican evangelical church with in person Sunday services restored after lockdown. Nearly all its neighbours are restaurants and wine bars.

    This memorial was once situated in Eastgate Square where it was unveiled in 1921 by Sir William R Robertson Bart GCB GCMG KCVO DSO at a ceremony hosted by the Bishop of Chichester. Made by the mason E F Merriman of Petersfield it comprises a stone cross with foliated ends surmounting a stone plinth. There are sixteen panels one of which bears an inscription, a second the City’s Cost of Arms and the others listing he City’s dead from World War One. After World War Two it was moved to its current tranquil spot as the centrepiece of Litten Gardens when four panels were added which stand flat and are dedicated to the dead of that conflict. More recently the memorial has been complimented by a wooden sculpture of two soldiers hiding in a shrubbery bed at one side of the gardens.

    Thoroughly amazing day out! All guides were helpful, informative and keen to engage with visitors for example suggesting taking a turn in the Lightning flight simulator for no extra cost. The venue will appeal to everyone including those with little knowledge of airplanes. The museum is just the right size to engage the visitor with clear explanations not only of the artefacts but also the history of the people involved. After spending 3 hours we also took advantage of the cafe which stocked a wide range of delicious cakes and light meals. We would recommend this venue to all.

    Goodwood Festival of Speed 2022 was absolutely fantastic this year. Went with my husband and 15 year old son and the only complaint from my son was that he wanted to stay longer than the 7 hours we were there!
    Hill runs were great and we were pleased to have bought grandstand tickets.
