We went here today for the free 2:30pm tour and it was marvelous! Our guide, Peter Green, was incredibly engaging and even got my husband, who is not a fan of cathedrals, interested. We leaned a lot more fascinating tidbits on the church than if we had just wandered around by ourselves. Tour takes about an hour.

In days long past, Chichester was a place which many pilgrims frequented to see the place where St Richard was Bishop and finally laid to rest. Chichester Cathedral, founded in 1075, has both Norman and Gothic architecture and replaced the cathedral founded in 681 by St Wilfid in nearby Selsey. The location of the Selsey Cathedral(Abbey) is not known precisely... More

This cathedral sits in the centre of town. It is well worth a walk around. Inside there is a walkway around a quadrant that reminded me of Hogwarts. It was very well maintained. There is also a cafe with souvenir shop and a couple tables outside in the covered walkway, so dogs can accompany you. Entry is free.

Stunning architecture inside & out, amazing stained glass windows and some very modern accents in this beautiful cathedral. Free to enter, donations appreciated, you can appreciate the building or sit and pray/worship. The Treasury is worth visiting to see the robes and old silver. I'm not religious but I do enjoy the calm and serenity you experience inside a church... More

Absolutely beautiful cathedral and unlike many others it's completely free. There are donation boxes dotted around as they recieve no funding. Maps with points of interest are avaliable and a lovely lady that works there spoke to my eldest son about the cathedral and he was given an activity pack about the cathedral. There are some fascinating items from the... More

Easy on the edge of the city, if your into this kind of thing go along and look, parking is medium in Chichester and you always do park, level ground as well, grand place for you to visit.

Free entry and always a verger on hand to help you to identify key features in the cathedral. There was a large nativity scene just inside the door at Christmas time and the huge modern John Piper scene behind the altar. Concerts held in the cathedral can be difficult unless you manage to get a seat near the front. With... More

Although smaller than Canterbury cathedral it was interesting to learn the local history behind this impressive building. Look out for the modern artwork if you are in to that sort of thing. Personally i am not but it did not detract from my the enjoyment of my visit. It was interesting to read about the fall of the tower in... More
