Welcome to Chichester!
Visit this lovely city and discover a place rich in history, art and architecture including its beautiful 900 year old Norman Cathedral, historic houses, a really interesting park, which your guide will tell you all about and secret gardens. Easy to get to from London, you will not be disappointed!

Chichester Cathedral is a living church that has been at the centre of life in Chichester for over nine centuries. It has been a sacred place of worship since its foundation in 1108 and is the only English Cathedral with a surviving detached medieval Bell Tower.

Your private tour of the Cathedral can be a general one, taking in the history, art and architecture or it can be more specialised. For example, are you interested in the English civil war? If you are American would you like to learn more about the Cathedral’s transatlantic ties with an introduction to Chichester’s historic artefacts, stories and noteworthy works of art?
