I visited Lichfield Cathedral in February 2014 to see Seth Lakeman perform here. It was a lovely venue and the event ran very smoothly! Particular songs such as 'portrait of my wife' sounded beautiful with the echoey vibes and added to the whole gig atmosphere. I have visited Lichfield on several occasions and have always made sure to walk via... More

It towers over the city centre - 3 spires peering over the Minster Pool. In fact it is the only medieval English cathedral with three spires. The cathedral is dedicated to St Chad and Saint Mary. It's not that large with an internal length is 370 feet so easy to walk around. The best way of approaching it is from... More

We enjoyed the approach along Cathedral Close (with information about the civil war exchanges that took place here) and beautifully sculptured west front. Things got even better once inside. From the moment we entered the cathedral to the moment we left we felt welcomed and valued by the staff and volunteers who passed on their enthusiasm for the life and... More

he historic cathedral of Lichfield is a must see, steep in history that well informed staff are keen to enlighten along with the architecture is a pure joy and just a short walk you have Erasmus House and the City of Lichfield and its wonderful shops and if you intend to spend the night in Lichfield the Garrick theatre can...

what a magnificent structure and so well preserved. The building is surrounded by a charming cathedral close which helps to create a sublime setting for a visit. The Cathedral interior is fascinating and a guide is necessary. Cathedral shop ok but parking is limited

Absolutely stunning building. Beats the pants off other cathedrals, minsters and minsters including York, Durham, Selby, St.Paul's and all the ones in-between. I can't describe the front of the cathedral, it is just breathtaking and I hope my photos do the talking instead. Well worth a visit.

We attended a national service to commemorate the 70th Anniversary of VJ Day. The Cathedral is well worth a visit, and staff are helpful and knowledgeable.

A place I always bring visitors, today we had the added bonus of sculpture outside and in plus paintings, all of which were worth viewing. The return of the stained glass is welcome too. There is some decoration going on inside so a small section was cordoned off, so a small allowance needs to be made. A visit to the... More
