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.
The city of Hereford, in the county of Herefordshire, straddles the banks of the River Wye and has been the commercial centre of Herefordshire farming communities for centuries. Visitors can take a leisurely stroll alongside the crystal clear waters of the River Wye or enjoy in the vibrant centre of High Town, where you can take in a show at The Courtyard Theatre. The magnificent Hereford Cathedral towers over the town. Take a moment to have a look at the stonemasons' work - the skill of these craftsmen is very evident. After exploring the cathedral make sure that you visit the Mappa Mundi, a thirteenth century map which shows Jerusalem as the center of the world. Christopher de Hamel, a leading authority on medieval manuscripts said "... it is without parallel the most important and most celebrated medieval map in any form ..." . Even though Hereford is a medieval town, it has progressed with the ages, adapting its traditional buildings to accommodate both residents and visitors alike. You can stay at anything from the most modern to the most antiquated buildings. Restaurants are plentiful with a wide range of cuisines. This really is a lovely place to stay while visiting the Marches and surrounding districts.
