What we could see of the cathedral was beautiful, while the other half was obscured by renovation tarps. We enjoyed the tour inside and I really loved the calming atmosphere. Basically, it's a nice place for a stroll and to break away from the busy market street.

Have visited often! The sense of peace in this historic place of worship has to be experienced. The cathedral is close to all the shops and other places of note so there is much to see in the locality.

One of the finest cathedral in this country. A gentle walk in and around the cathedral with so much that is accessible. Photos could be respectfully taken whilst admiring this beautiful monument to the people of Chichester. A must visit if on vacation in the centre part of the fine small city of Chichester.

From the Chagal window to the Arundel tomb (read Philip Larkin's poem) to the tomb of William Huskisson (I won't spoil that story...) Chichester cathedral is full of surprises - and that's without even dwelling on the sense of stillness and calm... Whatever your thoughts about organized religion or your beliefs, a visit here is well worthwhile.

What a wonderful cathedral to visit. It is a classic Gothic cathedral but with high-lights and drama at every turn including Larkin's famous Lord-And-Lady memorial, a Graham Sutherland masterpiece, a Chagall-designed window, and a (missing) Piper tapestry, as well as all the beautiful Romanesque, Early English and Decorated architecture. Not sure how I've managed not to have visited this before,... More

Stunning 11c Cathedral with fabulous 20th Century art work and ancient roman remains. Beautiful. Stroll around and enjoy and spot the amazing art on high.

The addition of a café is a bonus, I think, as well as the ability to walk around outside. An almost hallowed feeling hen inside, with wonderful stained glass windows, chapels, etc.
