Lichfield is a cathedral city set in the heart of England and nestled nicely in the beautiful countryside of South Staffordshire. Lichfield is situated approximately 16 miles north of Birmingham and 13 miles from Burton Upon Trent.

Lichfield has a rich and varied history, with Georgian and Tudor fronted shops, cobbled shopping streets. The unique three spired cathedral stands tall over the city and houses the St Chad’s Gospels and Lichfield Angel. There are several museums to visit including the Georgian home of Samuel Johnson, the author of the Dictionary of English Language which is situated on the edge of the market place. The physician inventor and Lunar member Erasmus Darwin House near the cathedral is also a must see museum.

The award winning gardens of Beacon Park are also well worth a visit as are the Museum Gardens and Remembrance garden. It is nice to have a stroll along the banks of the Minster Pool which offers some lovely views of the Cathedral.
