We only had a short time to drop in here on our way elsewhere but we will be back. The exterior is beautiful with some amazing carvings along with the three spires and the interior has some lovely memorials and stained glass.

Besides Samuel Johnson's and Erasmus Darwin's houses, this is LIchfield's main attraction. The cathedral has three spires rather than the usual two, and is quite a large structure. No admission fee, but donations are requested.

Beautiful cathedral, you can have guided tour which is very informative but if you prefer to wonder around then it's still an interesting experience .minster pool alongside the cathedral enhances the whole experience. Cathedral beautiful at night also. Worth a visit

Lichfield Cathedral is a building that has seen it all. It is a beautiful structure inside and out and a testament to the medieval stone mason's craft and artistry. We are lucky that such structures still stand today. Inside it exudes the peace and calm that a house of prayer should. Close your eyes and revel in the atmosphere of... More

This beautiful cathedral is well worth a visit, it is lovely inside and out. The detail within this building must be seen. There are a number of very famous people buried within it. Also a young hero called Stephen Sutton's ferneral service was held here
