What an amazing place. We only found it by chance as the entrance was behind where we were staying (Chichester Inn). So peaceful and tranquil with seating. Beautifully maintained.
Totally charming

Once you find this garden, you are in for a treat. Many exotic plants and lovely rooms and architechture.
Beautiful old walls. Visited in May, gardens full of peonies, roses, and poppies.
A pleasant arboretum at the end.

We visited on a sunny spring day, with the gardens looking great. We were able to use a blue light card to get a discount on entry (I think RHS members are free). I felt there wasn’t much to see in the palace, the gardens are the main attraction with the wells which give the town it’s name. There are some lovely views of the palace and cathedral.

The public can access the grounds and walk around the moat and visit the cafe. When we visited they were getting ready for a cinema showing of Hot Fuzz (15th anniversary) which was filmed in Wells and a wedding which meant the palace was shut in the afternoon (so worth checking the website in advance before you go).

The tickets are valid for a year so it would be nice to go back and see the gardens through the seasons.

Amazing space in the centre of the city. Walled and well attended gardens full of variety and wonderful trees. Well done to the volunteers and all involved.

Beautiful garden to walk around. Well maintained. Beautiful on a hot sunny day to walk around or to sit and just enjoy the garden.

This is a haven of peace and quiet a stone's throw away from a busy city centre. Had a gorgeous time wandering around the gardens. Bliss.

These are beautiful gardens in the center of Chichester. A haven from traffic noise with great views of the cathedral. i visited on a sunny Saturday in November 2021. The foliage colors were wonderful.

Peaceful and pretty with great views of the cathedral. Take a picnic - you'll want to hang around for a while.

We stopped here on our way to the cathedral. Lovely gardens with large area of grass and trees with some seats as well as areas of formal planting. Very peaceful.
