Chichester City Guide
Chichester, a cathedral city in West Sussex, holds significant historical importance with traces of Roman settlement evident throughout the city. Roman baths, a city wall (later replaced by a Georgian wall), an amphitheatre (now transformed into a park), and the ancient Roman road known as State Street connecting Chichester to London all stand as reminders of its Roman past.
The city boasts numerous grade II listed buildings, adding to its architectural charm. Among its notable landmarks is the Chichester City Cross, a unique butter market located at the intersection of North, East, South, and West streets. Constructed in 1500 by Bishop Edward Storey, the City Cross served as a shelter for merchants selling their goods during market days.
