Mini guide to Lichfield

     

Despite the population boom Lichfield has undergone since the 1950s, the town retains a certain amount of charm and has not been spoilt by the inevitable creation of ugly suburbs that mar other nearby cities. Located to the northeast of Birmingham, the town is known for its fine buildings, summer festivals and the famous writer, Dr Samuel Johnson.

Lichfield has kept its own unique identity despite being very near to the UK's second city and conurbation of Birmingham, and there are many places of interest among the historic streets. Highlights in the town include the magnificent three sided 13th century sandstone cathedral, the National Memorial Arboretum to commemorate the fallen soldiers of WWII, the City Dungeons and some commendable museums.

Lichfield is also a busy shopping town and there are plenty of local specialist shops in the pedestrianised centre, as well as an increasing number of larger chain stores, while the many green areas such as Beacon Park and the Garden of Remembrance provide respite. Recreational activities are also in abundance in Lichfield and there is no shortage of bars and pubs to choose from.

For those visitors with cars, there are some nearby attractions worth exploring, such as the world famous Belfry golf course in Wishaw to the south, the National Exhibition Centre on the M42 just outside Birmingham and the outstanding Peak District National Park to the north. Birmingham itself is a multicultural blend containing a wealth of attractions and museums.

The A38 leading from junction 6 of the M6 motorway provides access to Lichfield and there are two efficient train services every hour from Birmingham, while two trains per hour run from London's Marylebone and Paddington stations. Lichfield is an easy drive along the M42, A446 and A38 from Birmingham International Airport and two National Express coaches run from here every day.
