We arrived late in the day when they were closing in preparation for something, but a lovely lady still let us take a peek and found some information brochures for us and the children. Will definitely return to see the interior, however the exterior is one of the most ornate I have seen in many a city.

Only had time for a very quick look around the cathedral but I would say it is one of the prtiest in the land. We spent time looking at the outside as we sat watching the food festival outside and I found the facade to be of an extraordinary standard. Will take a linger look around next time I am... More

We visited the Cathedral on Saturday while taking a break from the food festival. Entrance is free although they do ask you to make a donation which I'd urge everyone to do, even if it's only a few pounds it will help. The cathedral is beautiful inside, I'm no expert on architecture but it was extremely beautiful and tranquil inside.... More

Well worth taking time to soak in the atmosphere and take a good look round. I'd briefly before and it didn't make a strong impression, but this time I was in the city for the weekend, singing services in the cathedral, and had time to appreciate its real beauty. It's a great combination of beautiful gothic architecture and very fine... More

Our first sight of Lichfield didn't really excite. It seemed just a small row of houses with a pub as we drove along the main road. When we visited to see the cathedral we realised this is a town with a lot to offer. Plenty of cafes, restaurants, pubs and of course the cathedral. The shear size of the building,... More

Visited the Cathedral on 27.8.16 and it was well worth the 90 minute journey from North Notts. We had a guided tour of the highlights by Anne a lovely and very knowledgeable guide. Lots to see and learn about St Chad and we were made to feel very welcome and stopped for Evensong

this is a truly beautiful cathedral and we were lucky enough to hear the choir practicing as we walked around. It is quite breathtaking inside although we didn't have enough time to take everything in. well worth a visit.

Internally, this Cathedral is impressive and oozes earthy history. But take some time to look around at the exterior, it has some incredible carvings.
