Overview

Despite the fact that Chichester Cathedral has been a centre of worship for almost 1000 years, it is for its modern art than many know this iconic building and hub of Christianity for the region. This was the idea of bishop George Bell back at the start of the 1950s and was mainly carried out by dean Walter Hussey between 1955 and 1977. The result is a window by Marc Chagall, no less, a tapestry by John Piper and a painting by John Sutherland. But not all the art is modern. Look out for the 12th century Lazarus Reliefs and the Lambert Bernard paintings as you explore this lovely building. The cathedral hosts very popular free lunchtime concerts in the nave at 1.10pm (coffee included) and there are a host of other events through the calendar, many free, to experience.
