A study by the research company MORI ranks Chichester in the top three places to live in England. Mid Suffolk and Wealden were first and second. The survey rated areas according to appearance and the crucial importance of this visual quality in determining quality of life. The report concludes that these places have created environments in which people feel safe and comfortable, where they can flourish and to which they feel that they belong.

Shopping in and around Chichester



Chichester is famous for its shopping and is one of the most attractive retail areas in the south. Its close proximity to the A27(T), railway and bus stations encourages people to travel from miles around to make the most of all the shopping opportunities it has to offer. It is a real pleasure exploring the shops in Chichester. Everything is within a compact area, and the pedestrianised streets make browsing easy.



The city is laid out in an X shape, with North, South, East and West Street, so you can not get lost - simply shop the cross X streets.

   

 

The central Market Cross serves as an ideal meeting place to greet friends. You will find a great variety of shops - from gifts to antiques, books to fashion. For the clothes conscious there are the well-known high street shops and smaller individual boutiques. Buskers and street entertainers add to the atmosphere, and when it's time for a break there is an abundance of places for refreshment.

 

However, one the biggest attractions in the city centre is a so-called car boot sale, where you can buy virtually anything for low prices. You will certainly go for such purchases !

 Thursdays (Disco) in Chechester!!!



One of West Sussex's best kept secrets, set in an idyllic location surrounded by lakes and countryside, Thursdays Nightclub is just 10 minutes by road from both Chichester and Bognor Regis Town Centres.Open every Tuesday, Friday and Saturday night, each session has its own distinct character skillfully crafted from the contrasting complimentary sets of two of the South Coast's finest resident DJs - Phil C and Jon C - not forgetting our regular legendary themed events.



Thursday Night Club

Portsmouth

Portsmouth is the second largest city in the ceremonial county of Hampshire on the south coast of England. Portsmouth is notable for being the United Kingdom's only island city, which is mainly located on Portsea Island.[2] It is situated 64 miles (103 km) south west from London and 19 miles (31 km) south east from Southampton.







Spinnaker tower

The tower, at a height of 170 meters (557 feet 9 inches) above sea level, is 2½ times higher than Nelson's Column, making it the tallest accessible structure in the United Kingdom outside London. The tower is visible for miles around Portsmouth changing the horizon of the area. It can be seen from the Isle of Wight, and even the Manhood Peninsula. The steelwork was fabricated by Butterley Engineering. At the top is a triple observation deck, providing a 320° view of the city of Portsmouth, the Langstone and Portsmouth harbors, and a viewing distance of 37 kilometres (23 mi). The highest of the three observation platforms, the crow's nest, has a wire mesh roof, allowing visitors to be in the elements. Windows extend to above head height, so it is not possible to get a view unobstructed by glass. The glass floor is the largest in Europe. The tower has a design lifetime of 80 years.

Southampton

Southampton is a vibrant, modern city which offers a warm welcome to visitors from all over the world

Southampton is the largest city in the county of Hampshire on the south coast of England,[2] and is situated 120 kilometers (75 mi) south-west of London and 30 kilometers (19 mi) north-west of Portsmouth. Southampton is a major port and the closest city to the New Forest. It lies at the northernmost point of Southampton Water at the confluence of the River Test and River Itchen,[3] with the River Humble joining to the south of the urban area. The local authority is Southampton City Council, which is a unitary authority.

 Brighton

Brighton is the major part of the city of Brighton and Hove (formed from the previous towns of Brighton Hove, Portslade and several other villages) in East Sussex, England on the south coast of Great Britain.

Brighton Pier is always open and has many attractions (including rides) undercover so don't let the weather put you off. For a range of rides from the traditional to white knuckle experiences, Brighton Pier is your theme park on the sea. Nearby, is the popular Brighton Sea Life Centre. For many other Brighton attractions view the interactive map.

The Brighton Pier

Brighton is one of the most vibrant of Britain's seaside resorts. It's got a range of attractions and facilities to suit everyone. If your visit to Brighton is a short one, your biggest problem will be deciding what to leave out!

In fact, according to official national statistics, Brighton Pier is the second most visited leisure facility with over 4.5 million tourists coming to sample the rides and traditional English seaside scene every year.



The Royal Pavilion

The Royal Pavilion was built on the command of the Prince Regent initially in 1787 (the architect was the famous Henry Holland) – the original result was known as “The Marine Pavilion” but it was dramatically redesigned by John Nash between 1815 and 1823 when the East became in vogue with royalty. Ultimately, the Royal Pavilion was sold by the Queen in 1850. The purchase of the Royal Pavilion from Queen Victoria, by Brighton, marked the beginnings of the site’s tourism dominance through the Royal Pavilion’s transition from a private residence to a public attraction under civic ownership. Today, the Royal Pavilion is the main tourist attraction in Brighton, with around 400,000 people visiting it annually.
