Loved the cathedral and the grounds were especially pleasant. I love the close, the cathedral school and the small cobbled street off it (Damm Street). Must go back with more time.

A magnificent Cathedral with lots of history set in an interesting city with 'local' shops and eating establishments in abundance.

Lovely cathedral, interesting history and architecture, free entry. Not the biggest cathedral but a lovey place to visit if in the area.

Beautiful and impressive, well worth a visit. Just a short walk from the centre of town - though parking nearby can be challenging. Also walkable from the bus terminus and railway station. Highly recommended and a must do if near Lichfield.

Thank Michael D

No, no charge at all, but if you can please leave a small donation, as it would help cathedral.
