“Beautiful. A lovely garden in a beautiful city.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 2, 2013

Lovely atmosphere, not too big. Kids love it. Plenty of places to sit. Great plants and flowers, especially in the central beds in summer.

“a haven of peace”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 24, 2013

These gardens are open to the public during the day, for a walk around, to see the city from the battlements, to have a picnic on the lawns, to soak up the 2000 year old history. A real treasure!

“Dojn't miss these gardens when you visit Chichester”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 2, 2013

A quiet oasis in the middle of my busy city, Great views of the Cathedral from the well laid out gardens. Easy access from the City centre and from the Walls Walk entrance close to the coach drop-off point

“Beautiful, peaceful place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 24, 2013

This is a real hidden corner behind the cathedral. It's a lovely place to wander at any time of the year. I hadn't been in winter before this week and while the mood was different to any other time I've been before it was still a lovely spot to stop for a few minutes.
