Our first visit to Chichester Cathedral. It's a lovely building with great colour, art work, space and ambiance. The colour arises from a mix of sunlight on the stonework and coming through the stained glass windows. There's a lovely warmth to the light and with the organ playing in the background .... For once they invite you in without charging... More

so impressed by the tour I was lucky enough to do here today. I ended up being the only one on a free tour of the Cathedral. My leader was great, and took time to find out a bit about me, and why I had been drawn to visit the Cathedral. She gave an informed and friendly tour - and... More

What a wonderful experience it is to visit this huge cathedral. From the outside it is an imposing site which can be seen for miles outside Chichester. You are invited insite and can wander freely to soak up the atmosphere of this serene building. There is no charge to visit but there is a box for donations which are needed... More

I saw the cathedral on a frosty day in November with clear blues skies and the building looked simply extraordinary in that light, ancient and glowing. I made you marvel at what human beings can create. Entry is free, incredibly, and they have a fantastic cafe in the very atmospheric, more intimate parts of the cathedral cloisters. not to be...

The cathedral itself is right in the middle of Chichester so it's easy to find. Once inside, the sheer scale of it becomes even more apparent. Beautifully maintained, stunning stained glass and touching monuments and plaques throughout. Very welcoming feel and a visitors information point to help you with any queries. Near the south eastern corner there is a fasinating... More

This is a mediaeval cathedral, with historic tombs and old stained glass windows. The most striking feature is the modern art, including a Sutherland tapestry and a window by Chagall.
