Virtual Pilgrimage │ Shrine of Saint Richard

Complete the final steps of a pilgrimage to the Shrine of Saint Richard at Chichester Cathedral.

This virtual pilgrimage, from the Cathedral’s West Door to the historic Shrine, is an opportunity to discover more about the well-trodden route and the history of the many Chapels, objects and art along the way, and also - we hope - to be a source of comfort and hope for you at home.

The Shrine of St Richard, a bishop of Chichester in the 13th century whose relics lie behind the High Altar, is considered by some to be the third most important in the land, after the shrines of St Thomas à Becket at Canterbury and Our Lady at Walsingham. Over the centuries, it has drawn many to both the city and the Cathedral.

Today, many thousands come to the Shrine during the year to pray, light candles, and reflect upon their own lives. As many are now unable to do so in person, we invite you to make this sacred journey virtually.
