| May 2023

With the kids off school next week for half term, it’s the perfect time to enjoy the city of Chichester and all it has to offer for families. Here are five ideas to make the most of your time and create wonderful memories with your loved ones.

First on the list is Chichester Roman Week, a fantastic series of events celebrating the city’s rich Roman history. Be sure not to miss the exciting Roman re-enactment taking place in Priory Park on Tuesday 30 May from 11am – 4pm, as well as the array of engaging activities hosted at The Novium Museum.

For a creative and inspiring day out, make your way to Pallant House Gallery. This stunning listed townhouse is brimming with remarkable art and exhibitions that will captivate visitors of all ages. It’s a must-visit destination for art enthusiasts. Don’t forget to keep an eye out for all the interesting Street Art in the city, hidden among the winding side streets!

Take some time to enjoy the great outdoors with the kids by treating them to a delicious ice cream and playtime at Priory Park’s superb playground and green space. Alternatively, relax with a picnic surrounded by the beauty of Bishop’s Palace Gardens or take a stroll down to the Canal to watch the wildlife and waterside activity.

As it’s a payday bank holiday weekend, why not treat the kids to some extra fun and entertainment? Chichester city centre has a great mix of toy shops, book stores, stationers and more. Pick up a new toy, a captivating book, or even some crafting materials to help fuel their creativity. With these added delights, you can ensure that the little ones are kept happily entertained throughout the break.

Finally, don’t miss out on the alfresco dining hot spots dotted throughout Chichester. Pop in to St Martins Coffee Shop for a slice of their delicious cake or indulge in delights from Cafe Paradiso, Luckes, The Barn Little London, and many more. For mouthwatering ice cream sundaes and milkshakes, head to Shake-A-Delic on Cathedral Courtyard, South Street – the perfect half term indulgence!
