The Cathedral dates from early 12th Century and oozes history. Entry is free and one is met by helpful volunteers who distributed pamphlets and were willing to explain historic events and personalities. One can spend half an hour or half a day or all day.

The cathedral and its gardens is an absolute delight. Set in the heart of this pedestrianised city with cafe's and restaurants aplenty park in the former Cattle Market (pay and display) with refurbished public toilets and simply cross the road into the centre.

If you are visiting Chichester don't miss visiting the cathedral. It's nothing special but still has an interesting history - and a very nice tearoom.

The view of Chichester Cathedral from the Bishop's Palace Gardens is impressive. The gardens are quiet and away from the busy pedestrianized streets. There are some seats, so your visit can be short or long.
