Trains have been bringing visitors to this historic cathedral city in West Sussex since 1847. While the station was extensively rebuilt in the 1950s, you can't go far in Chichester without coming across evidence of the city's impressive past. The Roman baths and city walls, the cathedral, and the Tudor market cross are all within about 10 minutes' walk of the station, and there are many other fine examples of architecture. In the mainly pedestrianised centre, it's easy to stroll around the wealth of shops, eateries and cultural attractions. Located to the south of the city, the station is right next to the bus station, with easy access to the by-pass and local cycle routes to help explorers reach Chichester's countryside. Chichester is the nearest train station for Goodwood and gives great access to the South Downs National Park and the beautiful stretch of coastline from West Wittering to Pagham.
