On this occasion, this amazing building was complemented by a wonderful display of Christmas trees prepared by local organisations, the opportunity to join in making 10,000 paper angels, and a Christmas market. No wonder it was busy! There are no charges although donations are, of course, very welcome. Apart from the seasonal trappings this is a spectacular building - although,... More

Well worth a visit, arrived when the Christmas fair & tree exhibition was on but it is a beautiful place to visit at any time

In Lichfield for the weekend and visited it's cathedral. Stunning! Really beautiful as is the area surrounding it. Inside the cathedral was a food and craft fare with lots of interesting and diverse artisan stalls. Overwhelmingly though, was the wonderful community atmosphere and, apparently, there are several other events leading up to Christmas. Catch them if you can.

A few of us from a trip visited the cathedral. It was free entry just a donation required. What a magnificent building. Very interesting read all the way round. We were able to light a candle in memory of someone ( donation) and we also assisted in making an angel and adding comments to a loved one, they are trying... More

Its a lovely building inside and out. On entry you'll be given a guide and advised about how to donate (at the desk or in the donation boxes). We were approached by the priest to ask if we had enjoyed our visit and everybody was very friendly.

We visited on a wet and cold day at 4pm. The two welcomers were very nice and explained that a donation would be appreciated, and would we like to gift aid it. It was done so nicely you couldn't find fault. I specifically came to take some pictures and was pleased to see this is free. As it was such... More

A very good visit on Remembrance Sunday. The cathedral is unusual in having three spires and the interior is stunning especially looking up at the central arches. I enjoy monument sculptures and there are many good examples here. There is a model in the cathedral and this gives a good idea of it's structure. The staff and helpers are welcoming... More

How can you not enjoy such a visual experience as this. It really takes your breath away when you first see it. The detail of the craftsmanship is beyond belief.

The outside of the cathedral is stunning, as is the inside. On arrival you will be given a ticket at a reception desk, this is so the cathedral can monitor the number of visitors they have, you will be asked if you would like to make a donation towards your visit - there are donation boxes around the cathedral if...
