This was a real gem to visit; beautifully cared for and helpful staff. The front of the cathedral is incredible and no disappointment inside. There was an interesting science display when we visited which got the mind thinking of religion v science. Well worth a visit - and a donation!!

Staggering!, outstanding architecture and a lovely example of a cathedral. Whole heartedly recommend. Really enjoyed the statues of English kings on the entrance wing.

Very short visit at the end of the day, and as the cathedral was closing. Despite that we were made to feel really welcome and learnt so much in such a short space of time. Thank you.

Relax and reflect in this great Cathedral

What a lovely place. Provides an oasis of calm. We were made to feel very welcome. Sitting on a pew chair we could feel the peace and quiet as our heart rate slowed. They have touch pad for Apple Pay and I was happy to donate £5. Reading some of the inscriptions I learned about the Mahdist war in the Sudan.

Beautiful well maintain Cathedral

Very beautiful and stunning Cathedral with well maintain of the structures. Impress with the glass window looking from the inside… clean and friendly volunteer . Open to public with No entrance fee but by donation as they sure need money to maintain this beautiful place. *** sign did indicate that they need £5000 a day to main the place by opening it to the public ***

Absolutely Beautiful
Aug 2021
A visit to the beautiful Cathedral is such a must for me. Having used to live in the area many years ago, I return when I can. What I love about that part of the city is that it never changes and I think that is wonderful! The people of Lichfield and the surrounding area are so spoiled having this gorgeous historic building right on their doorstep. Look after what you have and treasure it totally.

Popped in to look at the stained glass windows. They were beautiful and worth going to to have a look at. I went to take a photo of the outside but it was ruined by a coffee horse box in front of the cathedral.
