Chichester is a city located in West Sussex in the south east of England and is the only city in West Sussex. The city lies on the River Lavant just to the south of its gap through the South Downs. Its origins began with its Roman settlement and subsequent importance in Anglo-Saxon times and is home to some of the oldest churches and building in the United Kingdom. Chichester has medieval city walls surrounding it which have been built on Roman foundations.
Chichester Cathedral, founded in the 11th century, is dedicated to the Holy Trinity, and contains a shrine to Saint Richard of Chichester. Its spire was built of the weak local stone and collapsed suddenly and was rebuilt during the 19th century.
The architecture of the Roman town within Chichester has been declared a conservation area which includes many Grade I listed buildings. There is another conservation area to the north around the former Graylingwell Hospital and another to the south to include the newly restored canal basin and part of the canal itself.
The city has taken maximum advantage of its past and has used it to develop a large tourist industry. There are also several marinas located nearby which support local related industries. The city's proximity to Chichester Harbour and the South Downs provide excellent opportunities for outdoor pursuits.
Located in East Sussex, the coastal town and resort of Brighton is around 50 miles to the south of London. The city is known for its oriental architecture and large gay community. Due to its close proximity to London it has become popular with media and music types who choose not to live in London. This is led to the city sometimes called "London-by-the-Sea".
In the summer, the pebble beach in Brighton is full of tourists and Brightonians alike. Poi twirlers strike a beautiful image against the sunsets, and flaming lanterns are launched into the air on summer evenings. To the east of Brighton there is a designated nudist beach. The pebble beach gives way to a flat sandy seabed just below mid tide line so time your swimming to the low tide and avoid the painful feet. Just beyond the Marina is an area for surfers and local fishermen cast their rods from the Marina or by the giant doughnut.
