Cathedral Tours

Chichester Cathedral's Famous Window by Marc Chagall
Our guide was enthusiastic and knowledgable. (TripAdvisor)

Regular Tours

Our trained guides conduct general guided tours of the cathedral at 11.15am and 2.30pm
(Monday - Saturday).  These tours are free of charge and last approximately 45 minutes.  (Booking not essential - just drop in).

A roving guide is available, morning and afternoon, to answer your questions if you do not wish to go on a tour.

The drop in tours are for individuals and small family sized groups.  Larger groups should book their visit in advance and a guide will be allocated especially to the group. Bookings can be made on 01243 813586 or

(Please be aware that very occasionally a drop in tour may be cancelled due to a service, concert rehearsal, or other event.  If you are travelling to the Cathedral especially for a guided tour you are welcome to telephone in advance to check: 01243 782595).
