have just spent the weekend in Lichfield and a trip to the cathedral is always a must do thing when visiting Lichfield. To sit on a Saturday afternoon and listen to a choir and band rehearsing is wonderful. The architecture and stained glass windows are beautiful. Walking around inside it was lovely to see several different Christmas trees each one... More

This is the only three spired cathedral in the country. We don't do religion in any way shape or form, however we do like to visit such places for their architectural beauty, and Lichfield cathedral does not disappoint. It is a magnificent building, it's just a pity that the sandstone from which it was built is badly eroding in many... More

We decided to take a look, not really expecting much, but were pleasantly surprised by a well maintained, interesting spot of sigh-seeing here. There was an interesting flyer in multiple languages and very friendly staff who went out of their way to help us. Lichfield is a great city and the cathederal really tops-off a visit with some local history.

We visited this facility with my dad who was widowed earlier this year and he wanted to go somewhere to reflect on what would have been their 62nd wedding anniversary. When we got inside, I tried to tell this to the woman 'meeting and greeting' but she just talked over me and forced a leaflet in my hand, even though... More

Lichfield cathedral is a amazing place to visit you feel so at peace as soon as you enter .after the loss of my dear sister earlier this year I went in to light a candle for her and felt so much better when I came out.

Due to the daughter singing in the 'Young Voices 'choir ,I have been to this building numerous times over the years for various lessons/concerts, especially at Christmas time when it gets fully packed out.I would recommend a visit to this Catheredral for its architecture and beautiful surroundings and the acoustics of the building when a concert is on.

I can see Lichfield Cathedrals famous spires when I walk my dog in the nature reserve close to home but had never been inside until recently. It is so beautiful both inside and out and the history associated with it is readily provided by guides that are willing to give a little or lot of their time. Architecturally it is... More

In October I made my first visit to Lichfield and whilst walking into town passed near to the Cathedral so decided to go inside. What a magnificent building - so vast. There are guided tours but I did not have sufficient time to join so walked round on my own. It is obviously steeped in history so will try to... More

It's Lichfield's 'Must visit' place and it's a building with heart and soul. Visit and marvel at its history, its splendour and its welcoming feel.
