Chichester Cathedral

Chichester Cathedral

Located in the small bustling city of the same name, Chichester Cathedral was founded in 1075 as the seat of Anglican Bishop of Chichester.

Noted for its excellent examples of Gothic and Norman architecture, the Cathedral's spire towers above the city. It is also the only cathedral in the United Kingdom with a surviving detached medieval bell tower.

Architectural critic, Ian Nairn, once described Chichester as "the most typically English cathedral", despite its unusual bell tower and double aisles.
