Absolutely gorgeous impressive cathedral in stunning position. The only Medieval English cathedral with 3 spires. Amazing stained glass and art. Felt privileged to see the Lichfield Angel in the beautiful Chapter House which also houses the precious illuminated St Chads gospel which we were told was the second oldest one in England after Lindisfarne. We visited this fabulous Cathedral twice... More

The staff at the Cathedral were wonderful. Informative and keen to share their knowledge. I was not aware of the historical side of the place before visiting there.

Apparently the only Cathedral in England with three spires (towers). Beautiful and unusual Cathedral. Very helpful and knowledgeable guides. Wonderful stained glass windows.

We have visited Lichfield Cathedral on 3 occasions. It is a truly memorable experience and you are made to feel so welcome by those who work there. It is also one of the few Cathedrals that do not charge an entrance fee. There is so much to see there of historical importance ; the Anglo Saxon hoard , the amazing... More

This is a brilliant place to go. Look out for the tomb of the bishop( near the font) who is just a skeleton. The anglo saxon jewellery is amazing. The widows tell stories and my children were fascinated

Not only the cathedral is well worth visiting but the Erasmus Darwin museum nearby is well worth a visit too. If you have younger children the park is a great place to go to. There also plenty of nice shops and a lot of very nice cafes. The market on Saturday offers a good selection of items. If you want... More
