What a wonderful site the Cathedral is. It stands proud. Quite easy access. You do not have to be religious to enjoy and appreciate an historical building. There is a park and ducks and swans on the water near by. Enjoy the shops in Damm Street. Have tea and cake enjoy the experience.

It was okay as cathedrals go, but not the most interesting I've been to. There seemed to be such a lot of Victoriana there, but what else could we have expected.

Given that this is one of those place that Cromwell knocked about a bit it is a beautiful little cathedral. Lovely statues both inside and out and a peaceful atmosphere. The little cathedral café close by is ideal for snacks or meals afterwards.

Set in the wonderful small City of Lichfield the Cathedral is a wonderful monument and place of worship. The surrounding buildings and setting is exquisite. Plenty of places to eat and shop in Lichfield.

Lichfield cathedral is the defining feature of this lovely town, which we visited for the first time today. A visit to the cathedral is a must when in the town and we started with a stroll around the outside, looking at the amazing stone carvings which line the building. The front facade of the cathedral is superb, being covered in... More
