On the Eastern shoreline sits the very pretty sailing village of Itchenor. Famed for its yachting facilities, there is a world renowned sailing club at Itchenor and it is also  home of the Chichester Harbour Conservancy which runs Chichester Harbour as a nature reserve. The Conservancy's work has helped to make the harbour an area where wildlife and recreation can co-exist successfully.

A delightful base from which to explore Chichester Harbour, why not book a trip on the Solar Heritage and discover more about the history, flora and fauna of this Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty?

A trip on the tiny Itchenor Ferry is another interesting way to see the harbour albeit for only a few minutes on the journey to the southern part of the Bosham peninsula.
