The Cathedral City of Chichester is a historic and thriving administrative centre for West Sussex. The city is located approximately 65 miles south west of London, 15 miles east of Portsmouth and 30 miles west of Brighton.

By rail, there are frequent services to London Victoria (1 hour 30 minutes). As a result, Chichester is a popular commuter location for those working in London's City and West End, which has strongly benefited the local economy.

Chapel Street is in a central location in the heart of the business district of the city. The street runs parallel with North Street one of the main retailing streets of Chichester and has a junction to the south with West Street by the current Post Office and the Cathedral. The subject property lies on the eastern side of the street.
