I have visited the Cathedral many times. It is now looking even more stunning since the restored stained glass was put back

As I am a resident of Lichfield I look upon this wonderful Cathedral frequently, and love to walk around the inside when possible. It is overwhelming and peaceful at the same time, well worth a visit along side this lovely city.

A lovely French style Gothic cathedral, beautifully proportioned, home to the famous Herkenrode glass, newly- restored, and to the St Chad Gospel and Saxon Angel, both 8th century. Also has some of the Staffordshire Hoard. Set in a compact close with bookshop and cafe. Entry is FREE but donations requested. Mediaeval library can also be visited.

The Cathedral is such a Wonderful and interesting visit for people of all ages. In the heart of Lichfield City, just a short walk ( 3 minutes) from the shops. Peace, tranquility, history, architecture all in one place. I have visited the Cathedral many times and brought many friends and relatives to see it. Super place.

Great place to see a 1000 years of our history. Try the cathedral cafe too for a very nice lunch. Very attractive statues adorn the outside of this one of our more attractive cathedrals.

Lichfield Cathedral is very beautiful, both inside and out. It sits in a lovely old close, not far from the cities two pools, and it's three spires dominate the skyline. The West end is a glory of stone carving and statues, and gives an eye opening sight of what to expect inside. Internally, the dimensions and sheer scale do not... More

I have spent many summers showing my friends the cathedral and its surrounding close. The Americans just love the history and the architecture of the Cathedral. The staff of the cathedral are both friendly and informative and the calmness of the Cathedral is something rare to find in a city.
