Be sure to take a tour of the grounds, in and about, but be very sure to take a tour of inside, stunning!

When you arrive, there is someone to meet and greet you and give you a good guide leaflet. The building is well maintained and there is a lot to see.

Beautiful cathedral with its spire dominating the city. More impressive on the outside than on the inside. Also make sure to stroll in the streets surrounding the church.. Very relaxed atmosphere on a sunny summer day.

Love the simplicoity of the cathedral and the very helpful ( and VERY knowledgable) volunteers. There is always something fresh- a new exhibition, a labyrinth experience - love to see it back! The cafe is a delight - restful and the garden has wonderful views of the cathedral ( and sometimes the peregrines!) Always come out feeling refreshed and renewed.

Fantastic to spend a few hours amongst hundreds of years of religious and community history. A very lovely cathedral. As with most cathedrals, architecture is astounding. Historical explanations help aid in understanding the significance of the grander.

This church is really an outstanding example of early English architecture and should not be missed. Also, the choir, organ and singing are terrific.

The artwork and the Chagall window make this not just a religious experience. The RAF chapel personally touching (Dad was Air Force), the size and scope awe-inspiring.

Truly an astounding piece of work. I have been fortunate enough to visit some of Britain's best architectural masterpieces and this ranks up there with the best. Beautiful inside and out. Any time i have guests stay with me, it's one of the 'must-sees' of Chichester.

A wonderful place to explore, inside and out, with atmospheric cloisters and notable for the Arundel Tomb, of a medieval knight and his wife, their hands clasped forever in stone, and made famous by the poet, Philip Larkin: 'What will survive of us is love.' Nearby are the lovely Bishop's gardens which give great views on the Cathedral and the... More
