I enjoy visiting English cathedrals, especially if I can catch the organ playing or a choir singing. Lichfield cathedral is one of the most interesting of the many English cathedrals I have visited, unique in that it is the only English cathedral with three spires and is the cathedral that was most damaged during the English Civil War. It has... More

The new(ish) displays in the cathedral chapter house are absolutely fascinating. In addition to the Chad Gospels we now have the superb Lichfield Angel sculpture, and a small display of items from the Mercian Hoard.

What a wonderful Cathedral. Certainly one of the best that I have visited. The architecture is something really special, as ts the atmosphere in and around it. Easy to find, just off the Pedestrianised town.

Gorgeous cathedral full of interest with superb and knowledgeable guides on the day we visited. Lovely setting-don't miss Stow Pool as well as the more obvious Minister Pool in front of the cathedral.

This building is architecturally beautiful, the carvings are intricate. It is easy to see the progress over the years as you stroll outside along the side. The stories and traditions are interesting a little gem nestled in the Midlands.

You are struck with awe and wonder as you wander around this historical important... More
