Top 10 Airbnb Vacation Rentals In Chichester, Great Britain - Updated 2024

airbnb Chichester
| 4 min read

The historic town of Chichester was once a Roman settlement, so don’t be surprised to find some ancient ruins here; in fact it’s known for what they call the Roman Walls, which are the remains of the walls that once fortified the city. It’s located off the coast of the English channel, just outside South Downs National Park, which contains sites like the Biignor Roman Villa, the Nore Hill Folly structure, and Petworth House, Park, and Cottage Museum, which is a 17th-century estate and parkland, and an art museum across the road in a Victorian cottage. Here are 10 Airbnb vacation rentals in Chichester that will help you find the right place to stay.

We handpicked these listings carefully, considering (wherever possible) Superhost status, recent guest reviews, location, accommodation type, prices, availability of dates, decor, and amenities. The image galleries get refreshed with the latest updates regularly. They were last updated on May 14, 2024.

1. A private sanctuary (from USD 114)

This private room comes with a cozy double bed, a private bathroom, internet, access to the patio, parking, and breakfast. It’s also situated right in the city center, so you’d be near popular sites like the Gothic-style Chichester Cathedral, the Pallant House Gallery, the Fishbourne Roman Palace, and the excavated Roman villa that’s now a museum. The museum is most popular for its floor mosaics, which you can see from a walking platform. There are also a couple of cafés next to the palace, the Lime Café and the Fishbourne Roman Palace Café.
