This magnificent Cathedral lies within a walled precinct in the center of Chichester. It is near the beautiful cross as well. We wandered the cloister and thru the Cathedral for about an hour. Lots of local history concerning the Earls of Arudel and the Norfolks. Parts of it date to back to the 1200's. A great way to spend half... More

A trip to the Cathedral will fit into any visit, whether sightseeing or shopping. It is free and as it is not huge, it will not take too long out of your day.

if you want to visit a truly unique building, try this for size - its big, not St Paul's big - but impressive non-the-less.

The superb Bishops palace gardens which are surrounded by the Roman city walls are a sheer delight... More

i have a son who likes to visit cathedrals. So I've visited almost every cathedral in England and France. This one is not very different from others.
