My great grandfather fought at Lucknow and Sebastapol with the 82nd Regiment of Foot and I was delighted last year to find that a section in the Cathedral is dedicated to this campaign and there was the Union Jack which the Regiment would have held and which my great grandfather would have fought under. It was a very moving experience.... More

You won't be disappointed if you visit Lichfield and the wonderful Cathedral. The architecture and the atmosphere is amazing. The stained glass window, which has taken 4 years to refurbish is now back and is well worth the visit. Please don't just allow half an hour - take your time and look in all the nooks and crannies. It is... More

Beautifully located and a delightful Cathedral, the best part of which was the Dean announcing over the loud speaker that she would like the congregation to join her in silence and pray. (apparently this happens at noon every day) This was beautiful and you could hear a pin drop. This is the first time I have ever heard this but... More

Possibly the most stunning building I have ever seen. I was in awe. If I hadn't been with small children I would have spent so much longer here. Free entry and they have an angel hunt for children and a children's corner which you can use. The entire cathedral quarter was beautiful and so well cared for. Lots of small... More

Beautiful, tranquil, with lovely views by the river and around the town. It's one of my favourite cathedrals.

I have visited many cathedral's around the uk but is definitely one of the best. It is absolutely stunning. Its not the biggest but it doesn't need to be. I paid £3 for a pass so i could take photos and I'm glad i did. Donations taken as they don't charge entry. Definitely worth a visit.

This is such an impressive cathedral. The vastness and incredible architecture is amazing. There is access to pretty much every part including a trip up the towers at weekends and bank holidays....which we didn't do as there on the wrong day :-( Definitely worth a visit if considering a day out in and around Lichfield.
