Lichfield Cathedral is great to wander through soaking up the wonderful architecture and history of the times. From the mosaic floors to the wondrous arches, spires and stained glass windows there is something that inspires all of us. I would definitely recommend buying a guidebook before walking through the cathedral as the guidebooks provide both history and specific items to... More

Lichfield is a fantastic place to visit - it's easy to get to and park, there are very fine places to eat and to be entertained - the shopping is great too! There is a lot of history associated with Lichfield, of course, but for me the jewel in the crown (and the place you do not want to miss... More

Unfortunately when we visited, there was a service going on so we were unable to walk round, but interior and exterior are stunning. Will go back another time to see it in all its glory

Inside and out this is an immensely impressive place. The Eucharist we attended was inclusive and welcoming and the whole experience remarkable. The low fall sunlight played dramatically through the nave windows throughout the service and the guest singing group from Knutsford did a good job.

A wonderful warm and friendly building, set in an intimate cathedral close. The music here is excellent and the staff helpful and friendly. The statues on the west front are really interesting.

A beautiful cathedral, architecturally stunning with gorgeous carvings and stained glass windows. It's free to enter, they just request a small donation of whatever you can afford. It's interesting to walk around and see the marble carvings, light a candle and listen to the choir sing (if they're in there!) The area it's in is lovely, in it's own little... More

What a wonderful and beautiful cathedral. I have family ties to it (mom inherited an etching and we later found out dad's side helped with the Skidmore screen), so we just had to pitstop to see it while in the UK. So glad we did! A nice sidenote is that it is donation-only, so you can give what you can... More

Went to a very pleasant organ recital with a video in the organ loft so that we could see the organist on a screen. Next day went to have a look round - will be really worth a visit next spring when the windows are reinstalled.
