Chichester Marina is set in beautiful surroundings, at the eastern end of Chichester Harbour. A designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, the surrounding region offers an interesting mix of countryside, coast and city. The harbour and the marina within it are perfect for nature and bird watching, walking in the countryside, or just soaking up the
ambiance. Meanwhile, the marina’s Boathouse Café and Chichester Yacht Club offer a range of meals and events.
The Roman cathedral city of Chichester is just four miles from the marina. Find Roman villas, art galleries and a planetarium, a Tudor market cross and the Norman Cathedral. Shopaholics love Chichester too for its unique boutiques, lively market and high street shops. Enjoy a night out at the theatre, try a trendy restaurant or pop over to Goodwood where there’s always lots going on. Find out more about events and attractions in Chichester here.
