1. Cathedral to Priory Park - 1.5 miles / 2.4 kms
Starting outside Chichester’s impressive cathedral, this walk takes you through some of its internal corridors, before opening out into a bustling street. From here it dives back into charming Georgian roads, called the Pallants, before arriving back into its busy heart. Out now, along historic ways, to the city walls, before ending at the Guildhall - a small rectangular church in the lovely setting of Priory Park.
1.5 hoursOK but diversion maybe needed
2. Priory Park to Bishop's Palace Gardens - 1 mile / 1.6 kms
From the playful Priory Park, this walk takes you along the city walls awhile, before plunging into the centre of the city past the 18th century Council House. Down to the remarkable Market Cross and into the Georgian streets of the Pallants, soon the walk wends its way past ancient cathedral buildings, before ending at the delightful gardens of the Bishop’s Palace. Time for a wander, and a well-deserved rest!
Each booklet has a page dedicated to the history of the city and 2 pages summarising each walk with suggestions on what to visit along the way. Walk 1 has 21 clues & walk 2 has 14 - both with detailed directions to follow. There are interesting stories about important people, places & events along the way; detailed instructions on how to find a clue if you're stuck; and a comprehensive map with the routes marked on.

"We really enjoyed curling our way round Chichester with your walks. Our two children loved playing in the park and walking along the walls. I enjoyed the quirky shops, and my husband was blown away with the cathedral and architecture around the town. Thanks so much for putting such a novel and fascinating thing together. Great entertainment for a family!"
