The Area

The Clock House is a little haven in the heart of the city of Chichester. Brimming with independent and high street shops, cafes, bars and restaurants you’ll be spoilt for choice for where to eat and drink. Explore the beautiful Norman Cathedral and gardens, take a stroll along the Roman Walls or scenic canal, admire the beautiful historic architecture and soak in the bustling atmosphere and weekly farmers market.


The Clock House is a perfect base from which to visit events at Goodwood. The iconic Festival of Speed and The Goodwood Revival are truly spectacular events, not to be missed! Goodwood also offers horse racing, golf and plenty of motor and aviation experiences.
