I particularly liked the tone of the assistance of the volunteers. Gently helpful and well informed but not assertive or "in yer face" - starts with a free leaflet on arrival. Having "done" the inside and learned about what was built when, a slow walk round the outside made much more sense. Its surroundings (The Close) add much to the... More

The three spires of this mediaeval cathedral tower over the town and the front is a marvellous reminder of our history both secular and religious, covered as it is with carvings of saints and kings. The blue gowned volunteers are warm and helpful, there are guides for adults and 'find the angels' for children. There is a small shop inside... More

For years we have had a decorative plate with a lovely watercolour picture of Lichfield Cathedral on it and the building is every bit as wonderful as the painting. It is a graceful, beautifully designed edifice - the outside is covered with statues, one seldom sees that many in good condition outside the rest of Europe. The outside is a... More

A beautiful place to be able to sit quietly despite lots of people in the building. It's now possible to view Lichfield from the rooftops of the cathedral and view pieces of the Staffordshire Hoard or just have some time alone with your thoughts. The Chapter House (part of the Catherdal complex) opposite also provides wonderful refreshments and in the... More

My sister, mother and I visited Lichfield Cathedral on Monday 21st December to light candles in remembrance of loved ones and to pray for those who are ill or in need at this time of year. My mother is in a wheelchair and the access to the cathedral is great, sharing the same entrance as everyone else. We were warmly... More

Towering on the sky line as you approach Lichfield. Three spires stand tall. Cleanwell maintaied cathedral with a welcoming atosphere. Helpful staffif needed. Shop close by with the usual soveniors and some unusual gifts, books and craft items. Well worth a visit.

It is a pleasure to live in a city with such a great piece of architecture and history on out doorstep. The cathedral is very much a must do when in Lichfield. Great for a peaceful walk around or to take the family for a wonder around. The outside is amazing how detailed it is from so long ago. Makes... More

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
