The Sights of Chichester

Earlier this week, I ventured into Chichester, a place I often like to go to. Only this time, I remembered to take my camera, as I thought it would be nice to take some photos as a record of the town. Later on, I hope to turn them into a scrap page.


So for my blog today, here is a quick tour of Chichester in West Sussex.

Starting with the very impressive Chichester Cathedral.


A street still festooned with Christmas lights
























The local buskers singing the blues.























The Chichester Cross clock tower in the town centre.
























Glorious Valentine's cakes.




















St Richard's memorial outside Chichester cathedral.
St Richard (1197–1253) spent several years tramping the roads of Sussex as a homeless outcast, after King Henry III refused to allow him to accept election as bishop of Chichester. Eventually Henry relented, and he became a bishop who was greatly loved for his compassion and sweetness of character.
Windows festooned with Valentines goodies and scrumptious chocolate au pains. Yum yum! Though I didn't actually get to eat one, far too many calories!!







The Old Cross pub, built in the time of George V. A warm seat in front of a fire and a lovely bowl of broccoli and Stilton soup.











Street seller, who looked very cold, selling wooden roses to quite a few passers by.








Sorry the photos are all over the place, I keep moving them and they move back into the same place once I close it down.

So that is a quick tour of Chichester for you, I hope you enjoyed it. Have a great weekend, see you for Sunday Salon.

  1. I love Chichester its so old and full of intresting buildings but also a hub of modern toing and frowing and hustle and bustle. I also love Winchester as its quite similar I think. Have a great weekend and an even better half term. xx
