Architectural Building Religious Site
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.

  • I am not a great fan of Cathedrals, but found this one very pleasant, I would like to thank the staff they where there if you needed them otherwise we were left to ourselves to explore. I personally found the atmosphere comfortable and inviting, The Cathedral itself was beautiful with it's stained glass windows and it friendly yet respectful atmosphere. If I was touring I would make time to take a look when in the area.
  • Excellent.Informative and highly courteous volunteers. Open for free visits including exhibition.Photography allowed. Pain taking efforts in maintaining.
  • Wow love this classic old Cathedral with great architecture works of art with a contemporary twist serene silent and a wonderful place for prayer and meditation.
  • The City Centre is a great place to Eat and Drink + Other things to do as well
  • A beautiful building great gardens will worth a visit and free
