Rated by Nikolaus Pevsner as the 'most typical English Cathedral'. The spire is reputed to be the only cathedral in England visible from the sea.
The cathedral was founded in 1075, after the bishop's seat was moved to Chichester from nearby Selsey.
It has a separate mediaeval bell tower.
This attractive window is in the cloisters and depicts St Nicholas and St Richard, Bishop of Chichester. It was 'given by a wayfarer' in 1908.
Here is a view of the cathedral from the south west with the cloisters heading off to the south.
