Tucked away behind the Cathedral is this gorgeous place. The gardens are beautiful and well maintained thoughout the year. There's an entrance hidden away behind the Chi pub and you can follow the path all the way to either the cathedral or through the arches...More

First time I was at Chichester, in last September, I found Priory Park almost by accident. I've just finished my visit to the wonderful Cathedral and was curious about the narrow street behind the historical building. It took me to a marvelous place, full of...More

These peaceful gardens are beautiful at all times of the year and offer the iconic Cathedral view. They are located only minutes from the centre of Chichester and yet feel world's apart.

What a beautiful and Peaceful place to wonder round, take a small picnic, the family or a few friends and just enjoy the open place and the well attended gardens, you can see the Cathedral from one corner and it makes such a fab picture.

Even on wet day, these gardens were worth the visit. Lots of bird life too and part of the Roman City wall. Well set out a just a couple of minutes walk from the Cathedral.

As a gang we've been here a few times. My boys love the trees and the colours of the garden. It's a little haven of peace and beauty, well worth stepping out of the high street rush to find it tucked away.
