This is a huge Cathedral with stunning architecture. Visit the Staffordshire Regiments chapel. Take in the stained glass and the beautiful alter. There is also the history of the broken angel.

This is one of the wonders of England. The only cathedral with three spires, There is nothing like it elsewhere and together with the ancient city of Lichfield it is a must see.

I love visiting cathedrals, and Lichfield is one of my favourites. It provides the perfect combination of spiritual peace with the beauty of design and some amazing history - ask to see the replicas of The Hoard, and some of the illuminated books in their library.

Recently visited Lichfield for the first time and decided to wander up to the cathedral to take a look at the exterior. Was pleasantly surprised to find that there is no entrance fee for this magnificent building. Once inside the area is huge - one of the biggest I've ever seen and you can wander around for as long as... More

We visit many Cathedrals to enjoy the architecture, music and worship. Lichfield scored very high on each of these and we really enjoyed talking to many of the local team.

I Have been coming here for about three years, since I started seeing someone who lived locally and then a year ago I moved to Lichfield so go there at least once a week. The architecture is awe inspiring, the stone masonry off the scale, it's history incredible. Every body that work there are genuinely very friendly and every visitor... More

Toilets and drinks... More

We were staying near Lichfield to visit the National Memorial Arboretum so popped into town on a quiet Sunday afternoon to visit the cathedral. What an amazing building. I love our Norman and medieval built heritage and this is about 800 years old. Fantastic statues on the front and an amazing very worn statue of Charles II to one side.... More
