Lichfield Cathedral is a hidden gem in the heart of the country. We invite you to come and discover it for yourself…
On arrival you will receive a warm welcome and a free Pilgrim Guide to guide you round the Cathedral. Free leaflets are also available for children (An Angel Trail) and young people (Saints, Swords and Saxons). Souvenir Guides are also available at £3.99.
For more information contact one of our Welcomers, trained Guides or Chaplains in the Cathedral and they will be happy to help.
