Explore the Walls
The City Walls circle the historic heart of the City. They are 1.5 miles in length and, for the majority of the circuit, there is a footpath at the top. By taking a walk along the walls you are following in the footsteps of the Romans and subsequent defenders of the City. There are plenty of opportunities to hop on and off the Walls trail and explore Chichester's shops, cafes and other heritage attractions such as the Cathedral.
At the moment the route isn't particularly well signed but the intention is to address this as part of the City Walls Project. New waymarkers and interpretation panels will be installed to help people navigate the walls and point out places of historical interest.
