Chichester……… Where did the name come from? In the late 5th or early 6th century the Saxons arrived in the area. Chichester was named after a Saxon called Cissa. The Saxons called any group of Roman buildings a ceaster. They called this town Cissa's ceaster. It changed to Cisscester then finally to Chichester.
What a great town it is.
Chichester is fortuitous to have so many fantastic events and things to do in the area. Why not explore some great walking paths along the harbour, or listen to the sounds of live music at the Chichester Inn.
