It's a beautiful building when we see inside and outside. It's quite small, so it isn't necessary spend a lot of time there.

On the outside this Cathedral looks amazing. A night it is all lit up, during the day time the architecture on the outside is lovely. BUT then you go inside and it is very basic, simple and the opposite to the outside. We were a little disappointed.

Wanted to visit this cathedral for a long time and so glad we did get round to it. Excellent venue, good facilities from main building to shop. Lovely little bazaar running the day we visited with a good selection of stalls. Small coffee shop available with a good selection of cakes etc.

Although I only made a short visit the cathedral it's a stunning and beautiful place to visit and we'll worth the walk up the hill

Roman Catholic one I think. They all seem the same to me. Someone was being tutored on the organ which was interesting.

I have often wanted to visit and finally managed it. It has a lovely peaceful atmosphere, but I did think it would be more decorative. That said, the stained glass windows are amazing! Well worth a look inside!

By sharing your experiences, you're helping traThis is very small and the major feature of interest is the local St, Philip Howard. The meeters and greeters were very friendly and tried to be helpful. However, this was of limited interest to me, and worth only a short visitvelers make better choices and plan their dream trips. Thank you!

We walked round Arundel and visited this cathedral and the organ was playing so we sat to listen and we noticed about the acoustic which was not that good with a little echo.

A beautiful building with a peaceful feeling as you enter. Lots of information available. Restoration is in progress but still worth a visit.
