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 the county of Hampshire in the south of the United Kingdom, the city of Winchester has been in continuous settlement for over 2,000 years. The city began as a Celtic hill fort which predated the Roman invasion. Following the Roman conquest the town grew and after several centuries it discovered a new identity as an important Saxon city. Eventually, King Alfred the Great named Winchester as the capital, first of his kingdom of Wessex and later all of England. It remained as such until the Norman invasion in 1066. Today, the city is an attractive and peaceful cathedral city nestled deep in the English countryside located close to London and Southampton.
Most of the things to see and do in Winchester, and the places to eat, drink and sleep are within easy walking distance of each other and the railway station. There are several attractive walks in the surrounding countryside, particularly towards Twyford along the Water Meadows, and on Old Winchester Hill. The city has a reasonable bus service, both within the town and to the surrounding area, although frequencies can be quite low with little service in the evenings or on Sunday.
