Chichester is a small city within the county of Sussex in the South-East of England. It is particularly famous for its 12th Century cathedral, and its harbor to the South.
The centre of Chichester is incredibly historical, playing home to some churches and industrial buildings dating back to the Roman occupation. Because of this, prices in the centre of town for property seekers tend to be very high, although if one is willing to move slightly further out of town, one will find affordable family homes in pleasant locales at a reasonable price. Whyke to the South is a popular choice, and is close to both the sea and rail links. Homes in this area are typically in the mid 20th Century style, and suitable for small or medium sized families looking for long-term residence.
Because of the historical buildings under legislative protection space is at a premium in Chichester, and therefore property in the area will always be pricey. Of course, the advantage here is that any investment will be likely to retain its wealth in the long-term.
