- An idyllic seaside harbor town on the river Arun. Graceful swans belie the hazards of the fast-flowing water. A quiet village in October. The knotted streets put dozens of amazing sites and wonders within reach: Chichester Cathedral, Arun Castle, and a long list of museums, stately homes, Roman ruins, and famous beaches.
