Large cathedral. On entering a very nice lady asked if we had visited before (we had not) and handed us a guide. Had a good look around. Plenty to see and do.

The cathedral is very large for the size of the town, you can see the spire from several miles away as you approach the town. The Cathedral is on a par with many of the better know large english cathedrals. There are several good exhibits within the church relating to it history which are very informative. The church is free... More

Wow! So glad we stopped to have a look around. It's really beautiful, lovely stained glass windows, fascinating history and nice gardens, toilet facilities and a coffee shop.

This is a quiet oasis in an otherwise busy town. There is so much history and beauty in the building fabric it is inspiring just sitting and soaking in the atmosphere - truly beautiful.

I was a little disappointed on entering the Cathedral as it is not as grand and obviously beautiful as other Cathedrals I have visited. However, on taking a closer look on walking round the building saw that there were around 10 modern works of art by artists with local connection and the famous tapestry by John Piper. Also,saw and read... More

It was a privilege to visit the wonderful Chichester cathedral. Entrance was free of charge, it was a credit to the hardworking volunteers. We were fortunate to visit the cathedral when the organist was practicing, and the volunteers were cleaning, and doing their floral arrangements. The cathedral was built in tenth century, burned done and rebuilt in eleventh century. There... More

If you're in Chichester you should visit this beautiful cathedral. A lovely spot to have your lunch outside if its sunny too. Quite often they have sculptures on show and also have a look around Bishops Gardens.

A visit to the cathedral is so calming, Stunning does not come near to describing the building, A visit to Chichester would not be complete without a visit to this magnificent Cathedral. There is a coffee shop also a gift shop. The grounds of the cathedral are wonderful, the gardens stunning with water features,

The falcons are nesting in one of the spire's turrets and the RSPB have a webcam on the nest with a screen set up in the cafe below. A real highlight.
