Go and visit this 900 year old magnificent cathedral sitting at the heart of Chichester and it welcomes everyone with a warmth atmosphere no matter you are a worshipper, tourist, interested in architecture or whatever the reason, you will love it here!
Address of the cathedral: The Royal Chantry, Cathedral Cloisters, Chichester, West Sussex PO19 1PX
I parked in West street which was quite close to the cathedral. We visited the cathedral on a Sunday evening, it was fairly quiet hence no trouble finding a parking space. I suppose the city can get really busy during peak times and you might have to park in various short stay car parks few streets down the cathedral. I have written another post regarding the ‘City Walls Walk’ and the stunning ‘Bishops Palace Garden’ just around the corner of the cathedral, please visit the following link for more information: http://www.travblog.com/england/bishops-palace-gardens-city-walls-walk-chichester-cathedral.html
Address to the street where we parked: West street, PO19 1RP, Chichester, West Sussex.
I have also attached a picture of city centre map which might help you get around. I have picked this from one of the car parking place and I found it very useful if you are visiting the town as well as the Cathedral. So look out for one of this 🙂
