First visit to the gardens although we have been to Chichester many times. A good month to appreciate the old fashioned roses which smell delightful. Overall a lovely peaceful garden, very informal flower beds with some large specimen trees. Really worth a visit.

A real hidden gem of a place! Relaxing and great to stroll around, especially on a sunny day! Just go, even for a short time. Will take you away from the stress of the city!!

I visit on occasion, when it's warm enough, with either friends or just solo to get some work done. It's a lovely spot, perfect for picnics or just relaxing on the grass. Well kept and never a litter problem typical of places like this.
