Discover Together We Rise
We are hosting a major exhibition of artworks from celebrated members of the Royal Society of Sculptors until the 6th September 2022.
Together We Rise comprises over 30 artworks presented within the 940-year old living place of worship, and across its grounds. The pieces respond to the artists' experience of the pandemic, their resilience, sense of community and collective hope for the future. Entry is free, donations are welcome. There is no need to book.
Explore the Cathedral:
Chichester Cathedral is a living church that has been at the centre of life in Chichester for over 940 years.
Did you know that Chichester Cathedral is one of a reducing number of cathedrals that does not charge for entry? This is an important principle for us, but a real challenge. Donations, however large or small, are greatly appreciated.
Share in worship, explore history, art and music and experience our vibrant programme of events.
Walk in the footsteps of Romans along the City Walls
The City Walls are the most intact circuit of Roman town defences in the South of England. Follow the trail that has been created to explore the mile and a half route around the heart of the city with the aid of a leaflet and guide available from the Tourist Information Centre, trailmarkers, and information panels at points of interest.
Relax in the Bishop’s Palace Gardens
Nestling between the south-western edge of the Cathedral and the City Walls lie the beautiful Bishop’s Palace Gardens, a public park maintained by the city.
Hidden away in the centre of Chichester, the gardens date back to 1147-1148. The addition of water features, new seating and a pergola walk, alongside improved access and the creation of a wildlife friendly garden space make this the perfect place to unwind, or have a picnic!
