Visit Lichfield City
With so much to do, Lichfield is a great place for a day out, combining a large number wonderfully preserved heritage buildings with award winning landscaped parks and gardens that wind their way through the city centre.
It was here that Samuel Johnson, creator of the English Dictionary was born, here that David Garrick carved out his career as an Actor and here that Charles Darwin’s Grandfather, Erasmus, led a scientific revolution, founding the Lunar Society.
Why not combine your visit to the Cathedral with a trip to The Garrick Theatre, a visit to Samuel Johnson’s Birth Place Museum, a look around Erasmus Darwin’s House, a perusal of Lichfield Museum, a stroll in Beacon Park, or take in the beauty of Stowe and Minster Pools?
Lichfield is in the heart of the Midlands about 17 miles north east of Birmingham, conveniently situated for the main motorway network. We are about 17 miles north of the M6 motorway, and close to the M42. There are frequent train services to London, Birmingham, Crewe and Stafford.
