“Chichester has the most intact circuit of Roman city walls in the South of England, built of stone 20 feet high in the late 3rd c AD and almost 1.5 miles long. A century later they were strengthened with bastions, towers 40 feet high which provided platforms for ballistae (crossbows) to fire down on invaders. Starting and ending near to Westgate roundabout, our guides from Chichester Walls Trust will lead a walk around them. We will hear more of their story and enjoy fine views across towards the city’s historic buildings, parks and gardens. Access to and from some parts of the walls involves long ramps and two steep flights of steps.
We will then have lunch at the 64 Restaurant & Bar, the fully licensed silver service training restaurant at Chichester College. It offers a stylish and peaceful atmosphere and all meals are prepared and served by the College’s students while being supervised by their lecturers. Lunch menus will be circulated for choices to be made in advance. Allergens will be clearly indicated and vegetarian options available.
There is a pay and display car park at Chichester College but it gets full early. Two nearby car parks are the multi-storey next to Waitrose and one at the Westgate Leisure Centre.”
