Stunning cathedral with excellent interactive screens for information about the Lichfield Gospels and the stained glass - and of course St Chad!. Highly recommended!

A wonderful cathedral. The outside is adorned with figures of royalty & saints. The inside has beautiful stained glass windows. There is also a large display of white peace doves, & other artwork. A real piece of history.
