- East Wittering beach is a shingle shoreline at high tide but sandy at low tide! The best of both worlds really. It is a quiet spot of coast but the sailors love it as the ocean here varies from flat to down the line wave riding if the wind is right. The beach is wide here so it feels emptier than it is. Shelving gently, this south coast beach has extensive shallows for the kids to paddle in at low tide and the village of East Wittering is within walking distance with shops and other facilities. There is a good selection of accommodation here with campsites and bed and breakfasts to choose from. Facilities include toilets, parking and a walk along the beach to nearby West Wittering.
- Chichester Cathedral has fine architecture in both the Norman and the Gothic styles. Chichester Cathedral has two architectural features that are unique among England’s medieval cathedrals; a free-standing medieval bell tower (or campanile) and double aisles. The cathedral contains two rare medieval sculptures, and many modern art works including tapestries, stained glass and sculpture, many of these commissioned by Dean Hussey. The spire of Chichester Cathedral, rising above its green copper roof, can be seen for many miles across the flat meadows of West Sussex and is a landmark for sailors, Chichester being one of only two English cathedrals that is visible from the sea, the other being its near neighbour, Portsmouth Cathedral.
- According to the inscription upon the Chichester Market Cross, it was built by Edward Story, the bishop of Chichester from 1477 to 1503. Built so that the poor people should have somewhere to sell their goods. An earlier wooden cross had been erected on the same site by Bishop Rede (1369-1385). The Market Cross is constructed of Caen stone, is octangular, having a strong butment at each angle, surmounted with pinnacles. On each of its faces is an entrance through a pointed arch, ornamented with crockets and a finial. Above this, on four of its sides, is a tablet, to commemorate its reparation in the reign of Charles II. Above each tablet is a dial, exhibiting the hour to each of the three principal streets; the fourth being excluded from this advantage by standing at an angle. In the centre is a large circular column, the basement of which forms a seat: into this column is inserted a number of groinings, which, spreading from the centre, form the roof beautifully moulded. The central column appears to continue through the roof, and is supported without by eight flying buttresses, which rest on the several corners of the building.
