Bishops Palace Gardens
The garden is located in the heart of Chichester in Canon Lane off South Street with good views of the nearby cathedral.
The site is bounded on the south by the City Walls (a scheduled monument of national importance). The north east of the site forms a boundary with the Bishop's private gardens and includes part of a Tudor wall.
This is a formal garden with meandering paths and planted with mature specimen trees. The garden also includes an ornamental fish pond, herbaceous borders, annual bedding, shrub beds, a rockery and rose borders. The Garden has several areas of open grass and plenty of seats for relaxation.
This site is a favourite place for both locals and the nearby city centre shop workers to enjoy an alfresco lunch break and presents an ideal opportunity to combine a visit to the cathedral with a relaxing break in the gardens. The site is leased from the church and is managed by Chichester District Council.
Please note, dogs are not allowed in Bishop Palace Gardens.
