I enjoy going into the cathedral, used to go a lot when I was younger and in the Guides, rememberence service was always well attended, and I used to be the flag bearer, which was an honour to represent our Guide group.

Lichfield Cathedral has well marked rooms and tours are available at 2pm Mon-Sat. They hold services throughout the day as well, visitors get the chance to participate in holy communion if they want to. Definitely a great day out for the family. Highly recommend

Beautiful old building. Unique, I believe, due to its 3 spires. Has a partial moat around it, with duck, swans, etc.

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.
