The Brent Geese have arrived in Chichester Harbour…
…so we know that winter has arrived. And with it, so many wonderful things to do! Come stay with us for a relaxing pre-Christmas getaway. White Barn makes a perfect place to cuddle up after a walk along the shore to look at our winter bird life, or a saunter round the Christmas Markets in Chichester and beyond.
Chichester Christmas Market & Nativity, 7th to 15th December
With over 50 stalls to choose from, you won’t go home empty-handed from this wonderful Christmas market, featuring arts, crafts and very special treats from local artisan food producers.
The pedestrianised North and East Streets will be abuzz with Christmas Spirit; it’s an absolutely charming time to explore the town itself. In addition to some of your favourite High Street shops, Chichester abounds with specialty boutique shops, and there are numerous fine merry-making options, from cosy pubs to elegant restaurants. Come soon!
Traditional Christmas at West Dean House, 14th & 15th December
Step into a traditional country house Christmas at West Dean over a nostalgic December weekend and experience the Edwardian atmosphere of this magnificent historic house. Indulge in a Downton Abbey-style experience and enjoy the roaring log fire in the Oak Hall. Admire the butlers dressed in Edwardian costume and enjoy a glass of mulled wine, accompanied by the sound of Carol singers and Christmas music. Horse-drawn carriages will be offering short rides around the Estate, to enhance the feeling that you’ve travelled back to a bygone age.
