Visit to Chichester Cathedral & Pallant House Gallery
Thursday 28 March 2019

The magnificent Cathedral has stood at the centre of Chichester for over 900 years. With unique architecture from each century of its life, it is both ancient and modern, where original medieval features sit alongside world famous contemporary artworks, including a John Piper tapestry and Marc Chagall window.  There will be a guided tour (in groups) of the Cathedral.

After lunch, we regroup at the Pallant House Gallery, whose world-class collection tells the story of Modern British art from 1900 to the present day, held within the unique setting of a Grade I listed 18th century townhouse and a 21st century contemporary extension.  We begin our time here with a private talk, and then have free time to explore the gallery.
