Chichester cathedral is a very special place to visit, it has maintained a dignity and simplicity which invoke a feeling of deep peace, calm and tranquility. People are free to enter this very special building without being forced to pay an entrance fee, it is a privilege to give voluntarily and comforting to know that greed does not inhabit this...

If you enjoy visiting cathedrals this is a must,look out for the mouseman furniture while you are there and at the right time of year the falcons roosting up in the tower.I have been a couple of times once was free and another time they did a huge flower show there and that required a ticket

There is the usual display of things religious, but the free guid gives an insight into some specialised, local different things to see. Worth a visit.

What an amazing cathedral, when I visited there was a lunchtime concert in the cathedral, the verger gave us a little pamphlet that contained details of the statues and stained glass windows within the cathedral; it was an amazing place, obviously peaceful and light and airy. I was very impressed.

We were nearly blown away by the wind and rain in Chichester, so the cathedral gave us welcome respite. The guide we spoke to gave us a very warm welcome and we really enjoyed our visit - it's an awe-inspiring and thought-provoking place. We had lunch in the restaurant, which was very good (although the tables need to be arranged... More

This cathedral is very clear and beautiful. When I visited it, there was a quite impressive exhibition called "the tears bottles". Hundreds of ceramics bottles were put in different places of the cathedral, figuring the tears and sorrow of people.It was not something visually beautiful, but it showed a lot of emotion.

We live locally and my children often ask to visit the cathedral when we visit the city. They find its beauty and size awe inspiring. I went to school in Chichester and am proud to mention that I occasionally sang in services there with the school choir. It is a place that I will always enjoy visiting especially as entry... More

Whether or not you're a person of faith, you can't fail to be impressed by this building and the warm welcome you'll receive. A beautiful mixture of Norman and later medieval architecture, plus plenty of 20th century additions and adornments showing this is definitely a living place.
