A must see

If you visit Lichfield, you HAVE to stop into this Cathedral. It was spectacular. Everything from the architecture and embellishments to the history was really interesting.

What a wonderful building, I was very fortunate to have the opportunity to sing with other members of the Voluntary Cathedral Choirs Association - and what a sound 100 people can make in such a place! It is something to consider how many people over many generations have sung in this place. A truly historic building. Unlike many cathedrals, you... More

A truly magical visit, it was such a treat to walk round this magnificent building, this was the third time we have been to Lichfield Cathedral and it certainly won't be the last.

Anyone interested in British history should visit this cathedral. A small bit of the Staffordshire Hoard is on display. Interesting civil war 'connection'

If you haven't been to Choral evensong in a cathedral then you haven't lived. This occasion the choir was over 100 strong!

We visited the cathedral on the day of the operatic performance as part of the Lichfield festival. It is a stunning cathedral, I love how decorative and colourful the cathedral is, the size of it, and I loved the poetry and art exhibitions that were held there.

Lichfield is a very interesting City with some out of the ordinary shops and Restaurants. The Cathedral with three spires (Ladies of the Vale) is well worth a visit set in a quiet close easily accessed from the City centre.
