A Few days in Delightful Bosham
Bosham in West Sussex is really a small and delightful Town. It has a really lovely Harbour and is a great place to spend a few days Walking and also visiting the surrounding area, especially Chichester, which is a lovely Cathedral City and well worth a visit.
This was also a great opportunity to paint some watercolours and to enjoy good food and accommodation at “The Millstream Hotel” in the Town, a few minutes walk from the Quay.
In this flatfish landscape the sea rises quickly to engulf the shore road and the cars parked there! Don’t leave your car for long!
It is painters paradise and we luckily had good weather so the opportunity to paint “en plain air” was very welcome
We also visited the Weald and Downland Open Air Museum, where many historic buildings have been gathered together as a village with demonstrations and lovely Sussex Weald Countryside to enjoy.
Here are the watercolours that I managed to paint whilst there, which I hope you will enjoy.
On our visit to Chichester we visited the Cathedral but also the lovely Deanery Gardens and this row of old houses caught my eye in Canon Lane.
We really enjoyed our few days in Bosham and I am sure we will want to return to the area again.

Having lived in Sussex (East, not West), I visited Bosham several times and found it utterly charming. And that incoming tide which catches out those who parked unthinkingly, would do more damage if it wasn’t for the fact that all of the vulnerable houses are built several steps up from the roadway, just ready to take the incoming tide. Another quaint aspect of a lovely little place.
Glad you enjoyed the reminder, thanks for the comment
what a lovely area!
Thank you Kathy
It was avery ice trip and a good opportunity for me to paints outdoors for a change
Beautiful watercolours, they are very good.
I was brought up in the area and still live within fairly easy reach and I don’t think Bosham could be called a town in any sense, rather a large village.
You are right is is certainly small!
