People are being invited to learn more about Lichfield’s past with a walking tour in the city.

The Discover Lichfield sessions are being organised by Visit Lichfield throughout January and February.

The 90-minute tours will showcase highlights of the city’s Civil War past, celebrated Georgian figures and historic parks.

Councillor Iain Eadie, Cabinet member for investment, economic growth and tourism, said:

“Our tours are a great way to enjoy some local history while stopping at the city’s historic sites to find out more about their stories.”

Cllr Iain Eadie, Lichfield District Council

Tours set off at 2pm and are running every Friday in January and every Thursday in February. They cost £6 per person and can be paid for on the day at the Tourist Information desk in Lichfield Library.

  1. Nice suggestion but for someone who works away from Lichfield during the week, a weekend offering would have been nice to appreciate the history of the area

  2. @Adam F……… A History of Lichfield by Chris Upton (several on EBay at under £4) Very well written and full of information. You can learn the whole history, then view the sites.

  3. I would love to do this but I can’t make week days. Any chance of a weekend tour please? Thank you
