Chichester Cathedral

This beautiful cathedral sits proudly in the Roman city of Chichester, the only city in West Sussex and county town.

Free to visit, this icon of worship is built with stone from Quarr on the Isle of Wight starting in 1076 and consecrated in 1108.

Over the centuries the cathedral has been plagued with fire, Reformation violence, Civil War and the collapse of the tower in 1861. It's a wonder it looks as good and it does today.

Today, modern art sits comfortably with a thousand years of English history and worship. Look for the modern 'gargoyles' in the courtyard.
