Chichester is a lovely town and well worth a weekend trip. The Cathedral is stunning with an interesting mix of old and new. Pick up a leaflet at the front or you will miss some treasures eg the Chagall Window.

Chichester cathedral is an unexpected treasure. Not just the Chagall Window but the beautiful architecture, cloisters, and the Bishops Gardens with the ancient roman walls make Chi Cathedral really worth a visit.

We visited today and were pleased to see entry was free but a donation is appreciated. Very welcoming lady pointed us in the right direction. The Cathedral has a long history but today contains a real mix of ancient and modern. The very modern font is stunning - very tactile! Dont miss the 16th century wall paintings near the exhibition...

A true icon of tranquility and contemplation. Our visit, though brief was uplifting: a monument to the importance of Chichester past and present

Try to make time to speak to one of the guides or take a short tour of the cathedral, if you hear the choir singing that will be a special treat

Chichester cathedral is a beautiful building right in the centre of the town. It is quite stunning when lit up at night.After visiting inside there is a well stocked cafeteria and gift shop within the cloisters and pristine toilet facilities,Behind the cathedral are the palace gardens and part of the city wall which only take a few minutes to view..
