We visited after meeting with family.The front of the cathedral is fantastic with all the statues of kings from the past.Inside is beautiful,especially the stained glass windows. When we were there candles were being lit to remember those killed in Nice. If you like old buildings then the cathedral is definitely worth a visit.

As a resident of Lichfield I'm proud to have such a wonderful historic building on my doorstep. It's always worth popping in and admiring the architecture and sheer scale of the building.

Went here as wanted to view the Anglo Saxon exhibit, which was really interesting and the guide in there was incredibly informed about the subject and really brought it to life. The cathedral itself is stunning both inside and out and the stained glass windows were beautiful.

If this cathedral was in Paris there would be queues and charges but it's in Lichfield so it's quiet and free. Go and see it, take your friends and appreciate everything!

Great cathedral. Stunning stained glass windows and artifacts. Part of the cathedral was cordoned off for the Lichfield festival. I would like to go back and see that part of the cathedral

A fascinating venue Amazingly well preserved mediaeval cathedral with its 3 spires still intact. Some Staffordshire Hoard on show and if you are lucky, there will be some very knowledgeable guides on hand. Beautiful building
