The gardens are always lovely, with many hidden areas, lots of seating and good paths. Entry is free, and the gardens are open all day. Don't miss this gem if you are visiting the cathedral!

Very close to the city centre these gardens are a wonderful surprise and well worth a visit, particularly good in the summer.

Lovely place to visit, quiet, peaceful and the most beautiful flowers, wondered around or a good hour in the sunshine, will visit again

It's a bit of a hidden gem, right in the heart of the city, yet slightly tucked away and accessed through unassuming paths. When it suddenly opens out, it's hard to believe it wasn't more apparent all along. Beautifully tended, plenty of space for children...More

The gardens are a place of tranquility in the middle of a small city. There are plenty of places to sit and gently reflect on life before returning to everyday life.

These walled gardens, tended by volunteers, are a place of peace and tranquility with wonderful views of the Cathedral. Few cities have such centrally located gardens with plenty of seating. There is interest all year round and the pond, which could have been a worry...More

This is yet another place of tranquility in the City of Chichester. Lots of seats to sit and admire the view of the beautiful gardens with the spire of the Cathedral soaring into the sky in the background
