Chichester Cathedral, Chichester

(1,300+ reviews on the web)
Architectural Building
With fine examples of both Norman and Gothic architecture, Chichester Cathedral stands at the center of Chichester. Founded in 1075, this edifice is the only English cathedral visible from the sea. Admire the free-standing medieval bell tower, the only one of its kind in England. Take a free guided tour, with no reservation necessary. If you prefer to see it on your own, you can follow a self-guided tour. Adventure trails for children will keep them occupied (within safe distance) while you roam the site. For a cup of tea and a snack, visit the cafe in the walled garden. Although visits are free, a small donation for the maintenance and preservation of the cathedral is appreciated.
