Choose Chichester

Chichester is a vibrant and thriving market town, offering hand-picked independent outlets and high street regulars, a varied choice of cafes and eateries as well as creating a hub for entrepreneurs, commercial businesses and professional services. Many people who visit Chichester come for one thing and then stay for another. Our aim at the Chichester BID is to help businesses and our members to grow and thrive by providing support to maximise footfall, dwell time and grow their business.

The Chichester Business Improvement District team are pleased to promote and assist with our member's events where possible, helping to communicate important information and nurture relationships between local organisations. If you have any events you would like us to promote please email Jeanette Hockley via events@chichesterbid.co.uk.  

Chichester BID is committed to helping Chichester thrive, be prosperous and remain current.  We are a not-for-profit organisation, led by our Chichester City Centre businesses and employers. We are separate from the council. We support local businesses through advocacy, knowledge transfer and facilitation. We are agents of change, encouraging the public, businesses and visitors to ‘Choose Chichester’, supporting businesses where we can.

Our directory offers details of all businesses, Chichester BID members, points of interest, shops, cafes and restaurants in the City centre.
