Lichfield has been named as one of the most pedestrian friendly cities in the UK.

A study by holiday homes company Holidu looked at the percentage of pedestrian zones in relation to the total kilometres of roads.

Lichfield came out seventh on the list with 1.44% of roads pedestrianised.

Top of the charts were Londonderry (8.4%), Exeter (4.19%) and Gloucester (3.05%).

A spokesperson for Holidu said: “Everyone knows that if you really want to get to know a city well, you should explore it on foot.

“This is the best way for visitors to get to know the most beautiful corners, the most secret side streets, the local flair and the real way of life.

“The pedestrian zones in particular are at the heart of a city with numerous cafés, boutiques and markets found there.”
