A stunningly beautiful building, with something of interest to see in every corner. A place that you 'must visit' when you come to Chichester. If you are fortunate enough to visit when there is choral or organ music playing, you will be transfixed by the atmosphere.

The Cathedral is beautiful and full of history. It is a lovely place to walk around, with volunteers on hand to help and advise. It is a peaceful place for quiet contemplation and prayer.

Very nice place to be especially in summer months when doors are open to the garden. Peregrine falcon's on view, if you're lucky. Go at quieter times for peace and reflection.

We had a very pleasant traditional 3 course Christmas dinner. The Tomato soup was very good as it tasted homemade. The roast turkey was fine & they were very generous with extra servings of roast potatoes & gravy. The mini Xmas pudding was just right to round off the meal.

We have never been to Chichester before but as soon as we saw the Cathedral in the distance we couldn't resist having a look. Free entry which is nice but they do ask for donations, which is absolutely fine. The cathedral is well looked after and absolutely stunning inside.
