Set in glorious Sussex countryside, Chichester is a historic cathedral city that dates back to Norman times. Great for shopping and sight-seeing, it’s also just minutes from the beautiful south coast.
For more than 900 years Chichester Cathedral has stood at the heart of the city. Described by Nikolaus Pevsner, the architectural historian, as ‘the most typical English cathedral’ its architecture spans the centuries, from original Norman features to the magnificent Victorian Spire designed by Sir George Gilbert Scott. The Cathedral is especially famous for its art, both ancient and modern, with medieval carvings alongside world-famous 20th-century work by Marc Chagall, John Piper and Graham Sutherland, among others.
The Cathedral is open every day throughout the year with free entry.
Free guided tours take place Monday to Saturday at 11.15am and 2.30pm.
Special trails are available for children and there are many exhibitions, talks, lunchtime and evening concerts.
