Trains have been bringing visitors to this historic cathedral city in West Sussex since 1847. While Chichester station was extensively rebuilt in the 1950s, you can't go far in Chichester without coming across evidence of the city's impressive past.

In the mainly pedestrianised centre, it's easy to stroll around the wealth of shops, eateries and cultural attractions.
