I was overwhelmed with the beauty of the architecture. (TripAdvisor Review)
This magnificent Cathedral has stood at the centre of Chichester for over 900 years. With unique architecture from each century of its life, this Cathedral is both ancient and modern, where original medieval features sit alongside world famous contemporary artworks.
The Cathedral is open every day and all year with free entry. There are free drop-in guided tours, self-guiding leaflets for those who prefer to wander at their own pace, and special trails for children. There is also a superb Cloisters Café and Shop, complete with terrace and walled garden.
Visitors can also enjoy the historic Cathedral Close and the beautiful Bishop's Palace Gardens, both only a few steps away. All are welcome at this splendid Cathedral - a fascinating place to visit.
The Cathedral is open from 7.15am to 6.30pm (Monday to Saturday). On Sundays the Cathedral is open from 7.15am - 5.00pm. For further details of guided tours click here.
We do not charge for entry to the Cathedral, as we believe this beautiful building should be available to all. Donations, however, are much needed and greatly appreciated. If you are visiting us then please do contribute; not only does this support the ongoing maintenance of this historic building but it helps us to avoid admission charges too.
(Very occasionally access to the Cathedral may be restricted due to a large service or special event. Please phone in advance if you have any particular concerns: 01243 782595)
