Arrived in time for the 11am tower tour. Incredibly interesting tour and great views from the tower even though the weather wasn't good. Fantastic guides who were very nice and knowledgeable. I even managed the tour given that I am a bit claustrophobic and there are some tight spaces. The ticket price included a free cup of tea and discount... More

Great building, looked stunning. Make sure to come when there is a service. Lichfield itself is also a really nice city. Make sure you come when shops are opened, a lot of nice little boutiques

We visited Lichfield Cathedral as part of a group learning about the Staffordshire Hoard. We received a guided tour which not only told us about this but which also covered the stories of the sculptures, the history of the stained glass, and the identity of the carvings! It was all absolutely fascinating and very beautiful.

I didn't know what to expect from Lichfield Cathedral, but was not disappointed. Beautiful carvings, roof structures and windows throughout. Nice to have free entry too. Well worth a visit.
