With unique architecture from each century of its life, the Cathedral is both ancient and modern, where original medieval features sit alongside world famous contemporary artworks.
In the afternoon we move on to WEST DEAN GARDENS. Nestled at the foot of the South Downs, West Dean Gardens in West Sussex is one of the greatest restored gardens open to the public today.
