If you have a spare hour in Lichfield then Lichfield Cathedral is a real gem of a Cathedral due to it being the principle Cathedral of Mercia.

I now live in Lichfield and the cathedral is one of my favourite places to visit. It's a beautiful piece of history which can be appreciated by people of all ages. Really well kept and all the staff are incredibly polite and helpful. Also, if you're ever in the area for their light shows, make sure you get a ticket!... More

I hadn't even heard of Lichfield cathedral until last Christmas and that is criminal! It is richly exquisite, inside and out. I particularly liked that there was actual worship going on, it is a Christian cathedral in use rather than "a pretty building". In fact I liked it so much I went back and gave them my entrance donation (no... More

A group of us went to have a look around - so well preserved and very well cared for. The façade is incredible with all the saints, kings and angels statues - if you are in the area it is well worth a visit.

This is a must see if you ever visit Lichfield. Free entry but you can make a donation as it cost around £8000 per day for the upkeep of this wonderful Cathedral. You don't realise its size and beauty until you enter. The inside of this Cathedral is as magnificent inside as it is outside.

Wonderful park for children, adults and dogs. Nature walk, great children's play area, crazy golf and pitch and put. Also go carts and bouncy castles in the summer. There are also special events in the summer. Just a great facility for the City.
