Lichfield Cathedral is a building inside and out. The friendly staff are helpful and welcoming. It's free to go in, but donations are invited.

Definitely worth a visit. The stained glass windows, architecture etc are beautiful. There is some building work going on inside at the moment but it didn't distract us. We will probably return for another visit.
