We’re delighted to announce that our hugely popular Tower Tours are back, with a difference!
What’s a Tower Tour?
Our Tower Tours offer a thrilling experience for all the family as well as unparalleled views of the city of Lichfield and beyond.
As you climb the medieval staircase of the great central tower of the Cathedral, you will be guided through the magnificent architecture of the historical building. Half way up the tower, you’ll be given the opportunity to explore our interactive Tower Education Zone.
