Make a day of Litchfield by spending an hour in the cathedral then stroll the streets and check out the street Market.

Cafe and gift shop are rubbish - there's nothing much else on offer unless you are into spiritual enlightenment. Alton Towers is miles better.

This was the second time we have been to the cathedral for a light show and this one was excellent. It was thought provoking as well as informative and did proud service to those whose lives were lost in the first world war.

Magnificent building.Enjoyed looking round although it was a little spoiled as when we went to visit,there was extensive work going on inside.Scaffolding had been erected and workmen were banging and drilling. Lichfield is a nice quaint town to visit and very clean Worth a visit
