We were looking forward to visiting the Cathedral while staying in Lichfield. So we arrived at 1545, with 15 mins left of admission time left (and 45 mins of visiting time), to be told quite abruptly that 'we're closing early today' and the door almost slammed in our faces. No hint of explanation or apology. We did email the Cathedral to explain our frustration and disappointment, but without any response so far. From the outside it is a stunning structure with an unusual 3 spire design so should be well worth a visit.

This is a really lovely cathedral with welcoming staff and interesting features. As we walked around there were people 'on duty' who would often come and talk to us and explain some of the features of the cathedral. Their enthusiasm and love for the place was very obvious. There is a lot of different things to see, different interesting memorials (having worked in Melanesia we were especially interested in Archbishop Selwyns memorial), the military 'chapel' and other architectural features. We like visiting cathedrals and have seen many all over the world. I think that this was one of the most interesting.

Lovely cathedral, very restricted access, and too bad about the militant staff that wouldn't leave me alone because I wasn't protecting my face mask properly against some fake virus. Very disappointing.
