I don't know what it is about the cathedral that makes me fell humble, happy, great full and at times a little emotional. And all this from a "hatch match and dispatch only" type of person. I really enjoy having such an amazing building on my doorstep. One distinctly un Christian thing I noticed. When my elderly mother asked if... More

We will not burden you with the tedium of ancient history of this building. You can find this anywhere. What is striking is the giant scale of the interior. The soaring roof, how did they ever build that? The huge supporting columns and the coruscating stained glass windows. What a spectacle!

Lichfield Cathedral is a really lovely place to visit I sang there at Christmas with the Wi choir, which was formed for the most part by the Hammerwych TA Roudles, Hammerwych WI. Lichfield is steeped in history, being the birthplace of Dr Johnson. Shopping is excellent and easy to reach by road and rail. Following a WI trip to Chatsworth... More

Took a five night city break at this hotel on the banks of the Danube. Welcome was very warm and friendly and throughout the reception staff couldn't do enough to help. The room was spacious and comfortable, but the best thing was the view over the river to the parliament building and the chain bridge which was all lit up... More

Hi Philip, We have thoroughly enjoyed your review but I don't think that you meant it for for the Lichfield Cathedral site? Budapest sounds wonderful though. More

I love Lichfield cathedral as it is a stunning example of what Lichfield has to offer. I was a little disappointed when they started charging an entrance fee. It potentially could become out of the reach of some families which is a shame. I've enjoyed many services purely by accident and have always been made welcome.

A visit to Lichfield Cathedral is a must. It is the only one with three spires and it has beautiful old stained glass windows in the lady Chaple. In the side chaple is a display of the old Lichfield Gosples, the stone Lichfiel Angel, as well as pieces from the Staffordshire Roman hoard. It also has two large Icons that... More

This famous cathedral is a must-see when you visit Lichfield. It is set in a peaceful Cathedral close. Entry is free, although you are invited to make a donation. You can wander around the cathedral at your own pace to admire the great architecture. There are places where you can light a candle and say a quiet prayer too. Well... More
