Activities/Attractions: The City of Chichester, located in West Sussex, was originally founded by the Romans back in around AD 43. Evidence of the Roman’s time in Chichester can still be witnessed by the ancient city walls and the beautiful mosaics they constructed at Fishbourne Roman Palace. Chichester’s most famous site though has to be its impressive Gothic cathedral with its tall spire that can be seen from miles around. The city also has plenty of elegant Georgian architecture giving the city a historical feel despite being very much a modern thriving city too.

For anyone visiting or staying in the area Chichester has much to offer both within the city and in its surrounding area.

  • It’s close location to the South Downs makes it an ideal choice for walkers
  • The pretty harbour and costal resorts such as The Witterings and Bosham are also popular places for day trips
  • Nearby you’ll also find Goodwood with its world famous racecourse
  • The fascinating Weald & Downland Museum that gives a great insight into how we used to live
  • The lovely villages of Petworth and Midhurst

Set at the foot of The South Downs, The White Horse is perfectly placed for Goodwood, cycling or walking; participating in nearby shooting, fishing, golf and many other activities; or visiting the many local attractions.

There are simply masses of things to do around the White Horse ... antiques, walking on The South Downs, cycling (on/off road) sailing, special interests, festivals, history, visiting Goodwood events, museums, shopping, theatre, cinema ... to name just a few.

The White Horse has an enviable reputation for superb food. With its AA 2 rosette grading, standard of organic local and seasonal cuisine, 18 year granting of the Wine Spectator Award and over 600 wines to choose from, it has been commented by some of our guests as one of the UK top restaurants.

"Spent an enjoyable night at this pub with rooms. I thought the restaurant was very good and we had an excellent bottle of wine from the extensive wine list. Roaring fire in the pub kept us warm on a chilly evening. Location is lovely with plenty of nice walks."

"Great hosts, pleasant rooms in a beautiful location. Great staff, good wine and food."
