Chichester may be the only city in West Sussex, but it is one that boasts a small population and plenty of country charm. It has previously placed in the top three of The Sunday Times list of the Best Places to Live in the South East and, for anyone familiar with the historic cathedral city, it’s not difficult to see why.
Playing a significant role in the Roman invasion, Chichester retains a unique sense of history. Today, the spacious conservation areas and beautiful architecture throughout the city, alongside the famous Chichester Cathedral, make it a truly beautiful place to call home. As well as being a feast for the eyes, there are plenty of things to do and see in the city as well. Thanks to the exceptional Pallant House Gallery and Chichester Festival Theatre, the city has so much to offer in the way of culture. While sporting fans won’t be disappointed by the fast-paced horse racing, golf and motor racing action that takes place at Goodwood, while the nearby South Downs National Park provides the ideal place to spend a day with the family in the great outdoors.
On top of that, Chichester also has excellent educational facilities, low crime rates and fantastic rail connections. Train services connect this city to London in just 90 minutes, with Brighton being 50 minutes away and residents reaching Portsmouth in just half an hour. All this makes Chichester a fantastic place to live for families and young professionals alike.
