The popular village of Oving is situated some three miles to the east of Chichester and has its own parish church and public house. The more comprehensive facilities of Chichester can be found within three miles and includes a mainline station with regular services to London Victoria in about 1 hour 35 minutes. Oving lies between Chichester and Arundel and is well situated for access to Goodwood, various local schools and Chichester Harbour. Goodwood hosts the annual Festival of Speed and Revival meeting at its historic motor circuit and also has its own private club and golf course.
