It's ridiculous to say that the Cathedral feels small but when you compare it with the feeling you get of spaciousness at, say, Ely or Gloucester, Hereford or Lichfield, it does.

A magnificent cathedral with the unusual bell tower being separate from the main building. Both the exterior and interior are immaculately kept and the added bonus is that one is not obliged to pay to go into the cathedral; there is a large dome shaped collection box for anyone who wishes to help maintain it.

Chichester Cathedral is by far a stunning piece of architecture. Enjoyed walking round found it very interesting, and everyone was very helpful. The grounds are also very pretty to have a walk round. Would recommend to have a look if you're heading to Chichester!

After spending an hour marvelling at the beauty of the cathedral and its artworks we happily made a donation, and we urge all visitors to do the same to help preserve this lovely building for future generations to enjoy.

How heart warming to find a Cathedral in this day and age that does not charge an entrance fee, for this Chichester deserves great credit. I am always ready and willing to make a donation to any church that I explore when in an area but totally refuse to pay an actual entrance fee to enter a House of God.... More

Visited the cathedral for first time and was impressed by the art inside. There are effigies,stained glass and beautiful tapestry. It is free and it is very well restored in places where the stone mullions have weathered.
