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.

Nearby are the lovely Bishop's gardens which give great views on the Cathedral and the... More

The cathedral rises on the skyline like a ship on the sea, and is even more impressive close to. The sculpt work is really impressive, as are the ornate decorations. The Norman arches seem to soar skyward when inside, and some of the inscriptions are of interest. Well worth a visit

The staff were also very friendly in showing us what to look at first and also the priest and nuns in giving us information about the history of all the saints. After the tour we then enjoyed a...
