Chichester Treasure Trail

This self-guided treasure trail is one of the best kids activities in Chichester – but adults tend to enjoy it too! Families are invited to hunt down clues in order to find the hidden treasure whilst exploring the history of the city and some of its most famous landmarks  along the way. 
It typically takes around 2 hours to complete, which means you’ll have plenty of time to squeeze other activities into your grand day out. Book your tickets today and start planning your perfect adventure.

Dunreyth Alpacas 

Petting alpacas in the gorgeous Adsdean Park, this is one of Chichester’s children’s activities that you do not want to miss. Enjoy the friendly nature of these beautiful, unusual animals as you lead them through the forest and take in the stunning views of the area.
Each member of your party will be partnered with an alpaca so as not to unsettle the animals, so make sure your little ones can be trusted to act reasonably calmly in their presence.
