Whether you’re a couple planning a romantic getaway, or a family wanting to enjoy the first few weeks of the summer holidays – there is something for everyone. To help you out a little, we have put together a list of some of the things going on in Chichester in the next few weeks.

Rare & Traditional Breeds Show

When and where?
Sunday 19th July at Weald and Downland Open Air Museum 10.30am – 6pm

What’s happening?
Celebrating its 30th anniversary, this event showcases some of the rarest breed farm animals and some traditional farm favourites. There are cattle, pigs, sheep, and goats to view – with different shows happening throughout the day. One of the highlights is an exciting and educational sheep show, where you can view a sheep being sheared and learn about the different breeds.

There is plenty to eat and drink, including hog roast, BBQ, ice cream and bread stall. For those who want something more, there is also a cafe where you can sit down and enjoy some dinner.

Have a Go at Archaeology with the Sussex Archaeological Society

When and where?
Tuesday 21st July to Friday 31st July at Fishbourne Roman Place 11am-4pm

What’s happening?
Adults and children are invited along to join an excavation – where there is a chance to discover real Roman artefacts. Expert archaeologists will be on hand to give you brilliant advice, as well as help you clean off and record anything that you find.

There will be quizzes and puzzles for you to complete, and prizes will be on hand for those who do it the best! It’s a fun day out for the whole family, and definitely worth a visit if you find yourself in the Chichester area.

Qatar Goodwood Festival (“Glorious Goodwood”)

When and where?
Tuesday 28th July 2015 to Saturday 1st August at Goodwood Racecourse

What’s happening?
A five day festival that celebrates world class horseracing, and is considered as being one of the best social and sporting highlights of the whole year. It attracts the best and most competitive jockeys, all competing in different races throughout the week for extremely good prizes and money. It’s known for being a fashionable event, with men and women putting on their very best clothes and enjoying a day in the sun – drinking champagne and enjoying a picnic.

This one is probably best for couples or groups of friends, as it might prove a little boring for children. You have to buy tickets for each day, so you can pick and choose what day(s) you want to go.

If you’re planning on visiting any of these places this month and you still need somewhere to stay, we have you covered.
