September 2019 sees the launch of the first ever Chichester Walking Weekend; a collaboration between Visit Chichester and The Ramblers Association South West Sussex Group. As a group of experienced professional tour guides, we are really looking forward to offering a variety of walks in the city.
Covering the magnificence of the South Downs National Park, the stunning stretches of coastline, the natural beauty of Chichester Harbour (an AONB) and, of course, the historic Roman City of Chichester itself, the weekend will showcase the wealth of attractions this wonderful part of Sussex has to offer as a premier walking destination; and what’s more, many of the guided events will be free of charge.
The weekend will offer walkers the chance to take in the stunning scenery that this unique part of the country has to offer, while being led by a knowledgeable guide. Over 14 different walks have been organised so far, with more being added on a weekly basis.
Trails led by the Ramblers will lead walkers over the picturesque Downs, while other routes will amble around the Manhood Peninsular, exploring the local history of Selsey and Sidlesham, against the backdrop of this Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. City routes will guide walkers through Chichester’s 2,000 year history, discovering lesser-known nooks and crannies and exploring the City’s celebrated landmarks too. Further walks explore the areas around the quaint market towns of Midhurst and Petworth, famous for their arts, antiques and cobbled streets.
