enjoyed tho addition of two modern heads in stone at the door. The greeters were friendly welcoming and helpful. The building is impressive as you might expect but it has a earthly community feel to it. In the corner of the room with the silver plate collection is the original weather vane from the roof - interesting to see it... More

Like all English cathedrals this is a magnificent and interesting building and in addition is blessed with a collection of outstanding art works. Would particularly recommend attending Evensong. Even if you're not churchgoers, I would defy anyone to remain spiritually unmoved by the heavenly singing of the choir.

If you love beautiful architecture, carving and bags of interesting history then you will love Chichester Cathedral. From the Cathedral through the cloisters it is a walk through history.

You cannot really go wrong visiting English medieval cathedrals. They are all splendid buildings. Chichester cathedral dominates the skyline and is right in the centre of this small city. Admission is free, although donations are requested. There is a lot to see in Chichester, interesting shops, numerous cafes and restaurants, Pallant House Gallery, etc Do take a few minutes to...

In many ways, the Cathedral is much of what you would expect - old and beautiful stained glass windows, stone tombs, rich history. But there are some quite remarkable modern pieces of art too, including the 'Christ in Judgement' sculpture by Philip Jackson, a striking painting by Graham Sutherland and of course the Piper Tapestry which unfortunately is away for...

Every time we visit the Cathedral there is something more to see and enjoy. It was Christmas so a local school choir was in full voice. The magnificence of the Cathedral is just amazing and humbling too. We build skyscrapers these days and glass edifices but a cathedral - it is a MUST to visit here. And don't forget the... More

Chichester cathedral is well worth a visit and its free. Plenty to see and lots of information available as well as organised events. The gem is the restaurant in the cathedral. It is self service with specials of the day at reduced cost. Good salards and very yummy cakes! Plenty of seating, good facilities and a lovely garden for the... More
