The peace when we visited on the Saturday and the a wonderful Sung Eucgarist on the Sunday. There was a visiting Choir from the USA, also staying at the George Hotel which rounded off the whole visit as my wife is a choir leader.

A classic English architectural gem, hidden in a charming town. This cathedral is a beautifully preserved and represents a fine example of English Christian architecture and is still a vibrant working church. Well worth a visit.

This is a large cathedral for the smallest city in England, and the interior is stunning. All the typical attributes are there but there is a fine sense of flow, with wonderful long views and a beautiful ceiling. The car park is nearby and is a flat walk through pleasant parks with river views. A stroll into the old town... More

I visited Lichfield Cathedral twice in one day. While in the area, my mom & I decided to visit and pay our respects to Stephen Sutton, a charity fundraiser who had sadly passed away shortly before.

I found the spaces awe-inspiring and we were offered a very warm welcome. I enjoyed the art that was displayed and seeing part of the Staffordshire Hoard. There was, however, a lot of chairs stacked around and I felt that spoiled the atmosphere a little.

Lichfield is a lovely little City and the Cathedral is magnificent inside and out. It is friendly at the best of times but has recently excelled when it became home for the very special occassion of local hero and the inspirational Stephen Suttons's 2 day vigil. Lichfield was aglow with yellow. The Cathedral was the heart of the City and... More

Great architecture and always accessible as it is not a major tourist spot. Well worth a visit (as is the city as a whole).
