Built for a prosperous wine merchant Henry Peckham in 1712, Pallant House is one of the finest of its period. Henry Peckham's family crest was the ostrich; unfortunately the sculptor who produced the stone birds that guard the gateway had never seen a real ostrich and as a result, Pallant House is known as Dodo House locally.
Now restored and open as a furnished museum and gallery, the Walter Hussey Collection (gifted by a former Dean of Chichester), a fine collection of bone china, sculpture and paintings are on display.
