Set in a stunning river location, Lichfield Cathedral is the only medieval English cathedral with three spires.

The cathedral features fine examples of medieval stained-glass windows from the 1530s. The restaurant and coffee shop sits in the idyllic 13th-century walled garden, selling locally sourced and freshly prepared dishes. If you want to use your camera, you need a permit, which you can purchase on arrival. The cathedral is wheelchair accessible, with chairs available for use on a first-come, first-served basis.

  • Lovely Cathedral. Lots of history. lovely grounds and quaint surroundings. Was really impressed with Lichfield on the whole and will be making a concious effort to return as this was only a short stay 
  • I have visited Lichfield Cathedral on numerous occasions. It is a very cultural and spiritual experience, that I could highly recommend. 
  • If you like architecture from the 16th century this is for you. Very ornate with Herkenrode stain glass windows plus treasures such as the Lichfield Angles. 
  • Fantastically impressive gothic cathedral rears up like an alien spaceship over the placid leafy Stowe and Minster pools. I don't know of any other cathedral quite like it in the UK.
  • I went there a couple of years back and the structure was outstanding in addition to the great services held there
  • Local sandstone thirteenth century Cathedral with three spires known as 'the ladies of the vale'. The West front is adorned with statues of biblical saints and Kings not unlike Wells Cathedral and tours are regular. Museum of the Staffordshire Hoard housed in the Chapter house. Entry is completely free and a Cathedral shop is within. Cafe and clean toilets are in the close. Parking is reserved within the confines of the close, but there is a short walk to the town car parks passed the lake. Statue to the Captain of the Titanic is park area near by.
  • "For my homework at school i had to find facts about our colour cathedrals i was in Lichfield so i went on this and i have learned a lot". "Thank u so much"
  • Very nice place. I would rate higher but they charge you to take pictures inside the cathedral
