Beautiful building. We visited early in the morning and had the place to ourselves. Even the vergers weren't in evidence. Very peaceful and quiet. Despite being in the centre of the city very little could be heard from outside. Some interesting tombs to be found, especially the one of the Earl of Arundel and his wife holding hands. Also the...

This cathedral has a special feel, very interesting tapestries and stained glass. We attended an Organ Concert at lunchtime, a varied programme and it was free.

We often pop in for lunch at the Cloisters restaurant at the Cathedral. Their dish of the day is of excellent quality and value.

One of the finest Early English Cathedrals, on a human scale and wonderfully positioned near to the city centre. Unmissable

No entrance fee. Interesting window designed by Chagall. The Cathedral restaurant is very popular. My meal was only just warm but very tasty and loads of it. Prices very reasonable.

It has such a lovely atmosphere and the guides are so helpful and well-informed. We enjoyed free music at lunch time - and the cafe is very good value, clean and nice food. No wonder we return.

As usual with cathedrals Chichester has the atmosphere that goes over you like a blanket when you enter. Its built of grey stone which might be Portland stone (?) A chirruping gaggle of red bazered choristers were entering the cathedral as I left - such a good sight!

As all cathedrals there is a great deal of history that can be seen, but take a guide to this wonderful cathedral with its Marc Chagal Window and Sutherland painting plus strikingly coloured hangings that are wonderful to behold. Just the right balance of old and new. The interesting information from the guides finishes off the story behind the Cathedral... More
