Use the ideas here to plan the perfect day out exploring Chichester Harbour Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. 

Family fun
You can never go wrong with a day on the beach, especially when it’s a Blue Flag beach with miles of sand. So pack up your bucket and spade, get on your bikes and get ready for a fun-filled day out.

Maritime heritage
Visit the maritime town of Emsworth to explore it’s oyster heritage and then take a trip in a unique Victorian oyster boat.

On your bike
The Chicheser Harbour Circular takes in lovely harbour views, a trip across the channel on a ferry, lots of refreshment opportunities and a visit to a historic village. Best of all, the route is virtually flat.

Roman history
Go back in time and imagine the Harbour as it would have been in Roman times. This day out includes a visit to a Roman Palace, a cycle ride and a pleasant stroll along the shoreline looking for Roman artefacts.

Wrap up warm and grab your binoculars and a bird guide to follow our great bird-spotting day out.

Car free
Being ‘green’ can make a great day out. This itinerary is all about relaxing, having a few treats on the way and having a minimum impact on the environment while you are at it.
