Things to do in Chichester

Explore Chichester

There are plenty of things to do in Chichester and the surrounding area and a stay at Finisterre Bed and Breakfast is the perfect base from which to explore them. The historic cathedral city of Chichester is within walking distance or just a short drive by car. The pedestrianised centre has a great selection of both large chain retailers and small independent shops and there are also plenty of cafe's, bars, restaurants, a cinema and the prestigious Chichester Festival Theatre for an evenings entertainment.

 

Just a few miles out of the city centre you can be exploring Chichester Harbour’s scenic coastal paths, bathing on West Witterings Blue Flag sandy beach, or gazing at the magnificent views within the South Downs National Park.

 

The world-famous Goodwood Estate is a 15 minute drive from Finisterre Bed and Breakfast, where you'll find the Goodwood Motor Circuit, Aerodrome and Race Course, home to the Goodwood events: Festival of Speed, Goodwood Revival and of course Glorious Goodwood Qatar Festival.

 

From Finisterre you can set off on a walk to Fishbourne creek, where you can carry on along the coastal path to Dell Quay and beyond. For the keen cyclist, there's the Centurian Way cycle route which runs between Chichester and West Dean, using the line of the old Chichester to Midhurst Railway.
