This walk can be started/finished at various points. At some points it is accessed by steps only - other parts by ramps. Fascinating to look down on both sides at what there is to see (fronts/backs of people's homes, Priory Park, County Hall and also...More

Enjoyable and easy walk along parts of the city walls but a little disappointed as there does not seem much information along the way about them unless you leave the walls.

Chichester is so lucky to have most of its Roman walls still standing. The walk is good if you have a spare hour or so and you get to see other highlights of Chichester too. I would recommend taking a break halfway because it can...More

An interesting walk along the original walls which brings history and imagination alive. Not as high as I expected , but free. Not all the wall is accessible , nor is it all intact but the stretches that are, and the views are worth it

Its always worth walking around Chichester's city walls Probably around 70% of them are still standing although not all are accessible Autumn or winter are two of my favourite times, for amazing colourful vistas over the city, Cannot recommend highly enough.

Lots of history about the walls so recommend you read something about the walls and the town and the significance

Although the walls around the city are not compete, enough survives for a decent walk. The Northern section is the most compete which goes around to the attractive park containing the Guildhall. Information boards along the wall help you make the walk more enjoyable.

If you happen to eat at Eastgate Square before a show at the Festival Theatre (and there are plenty of good eateries there) then a short cut by the walls through Priory Park is healthy and interesting. Well worth exploring and it's good to get...More
