Had a wonder around this beautiful Cathedral. There are lots of entrances and little areas to go off into and a nice coffee shop inside! It is also accessible for pushchairs.

to find a John Piper Tapestry , Graham Sutherland painting and a Chagal stained glass window all in one place is rather amazing - + thought provoking exhibition of Syrian refugees -

You can look around the cathedral for free, but they do ask for a donation. The excellent guided tours with enthusiastic volunteer guides are also free and take about an hour. Was pleasantly surprised and very impressed by all the modern art in the cathedral ( don't miss the stained glass window by Mark Chagall)

A symphony in stone & glass - yes, a cliche but it works! Very clearly sitting in central Chichester of course - and the spectacular Chagall is pure celebration! Don't miss the Sutherland altar-piece too; startlingly raw. AND... the profoundly-realised, standing carved sculptures til November: Ana Maria Pacheco's 'Shadow of the Wanderer'. Exceptional. I love this Cathedral for its own... More

I was impressed by the variety of things to see in the cathedral, including a thought-provoking modern art installation and also the original inspiration for one of Philip Larkin's poems. The visit exceeded my expectations.

Beautiful cathedral which never palls. So much history and interest. The Chagal stained glass window must be seen and the main altars are spectacular. A must to see in Chichester. The coffee shop is a regular venue for the locals, providing good quality food and drink.

if you visit when the peregrine eggs are hatched it's very exciting for children to watch on screens set up. Lots of interest for children too inside the cathedral if you care to point and explain

It was a splendid place to visit the stain glass windows are beautiful and the information given by the people is very interesting you can walk around at your own pace and take everything in. I learned a lot and found it very interesting

A nice visit in a gorgeous cathedral in the middle of Chichester. It is well worth a visit. When we were there kids sang lovely in the church and they played the Star Wars theme song- fun!
