Chichester lies 18 miles east of Portsmouth in West Sussex and has a population in excess of 20,000. The city, dating from Roman times, is divided by four streets, North, South, East and West, following the early Roman plan, which meet at the famous Market Cross. Chichester cathedral dates from Norman times. The town’s museums exhibit historical and archaeological artefacts, while remains of the Roman walls can still be seen in the grounds of the gardens of the Bishop’s palace. The town also boasts a festival theatre and, with the development of the nearby Birdham yacht basin, has become a popular boating centre.
