Attraction details
Owner description: Portsmouth Anglican Cathedral is the Mother Church of the Diocese of Portsmouth, a geographical area including south-east Hampshire, Portsea Island and the Isle of Wight. For centuries this building, the Cathedral of the Sea, has watched, listened and helped the people of Portsmouth navigate the passage of time. It has witnessed war and peace, famous marriages, been bombed and rebuilt and remains a building of greatness and simple enduring beauty. More than this it is a vibrant and lively community set at the heart of the city and diocese of Portsmouth, responding to the call of God to meet people’s needs and equipping the whole diocese to share the love of God in Jesus Christ. ☩

“Lovely and unusual building”
Reviewed April 8, 2013

The cathedral is an unusual square shape with the organ in a loft over the centre of the building just above the transept. There is also an unusual font underneath the organ loft. The building is still being restored and part of it could not be seen so I look forward to seeing it when it is finished.

“Normal cathedral in a peaceful area!”
Reviewed April 8, 2013

Nothing special! Just a normal cathedral in a nice and peaceful area.

You will pass by that area if you want to go in the nice dock there which is oposite to the spinaker tower.

I don't think you will be spending much time there but it is always up to you! :)
