Choose Chichester to visit, shop and do business…

Nestled between the sea and the South Downs, Chichester offers a perfect backdrop for shopping, eating and soaking up the laid back Sussex atmosphere.

In the shadow of Chichester Cathedral the city is home to an interesting range of shops, mixing hand-picked independent outlets with high street regulars. Much of the main shopping area is pedestrianised providing a stress-free shopping experience and the opportunity to stop and watch the world go by at one of the many places to eat and drink. 

The city is home to an exciting array of events throughout the year, from farmers’ markets and street entertainment to biennial Festival of Flowers.

Our directory offers details of all the businesses, shops and restaurants in the City centre, so you can plan your visit.

Chichester Business Improvement District (BID) is responsible for improving the trading environment and vibrancy of Chichester City Centre. For more information about Chichester and its surrounding areas please see the Visit Chichester website.
