We were surprised to find that entry to the cathedral is still free (we are always happy to make a small donation in lieu of an entry charge). The building has many interesting aspects, we particularly liked the tapestries behind the altar and the cloisters. Definitely worth an hour or so of anybody's time.

Quite a surprise to visit this beautiful medieval cathedral with its bell towe and the stained glass windows ( don't miss the Chagall) and discover Saint Richard the patron of this church. There is a place for tea in the garden

This is not just a run-of the mill medieval cathedral. Alongside the usual mix of architectural styles there are artistic works from all periods. See the Chagal window - like it or not you cannot miss it.

Amazingly beautiful cathedral, free entry too. Well worth a visit if you're in the area. We were fortunate to have the unexpected bonus of seeing the choir rehearse for an evening concert.

I've lived in West Sussex all my life and never visited the cathedral so with a few days off I took myself and the other half for a wander. Our wander was nearly 90 mins long packed with all sorts of interesting and strange information. It's all free (donations welcomed of course) and there are knowledgable peeps everywhere to ask...
