Lichfield's Greatest Victorians

About

Lichfield saw many developments during the lengthy reign of Queen Victoria - the change from the major coaching city of the 1820's to the construction of the railways at the end of the 19th century, the redevelopment of Lichfield Cathedral, the installation of the statue of Samuel Johnson on Market Square and the start of the blossoming retail trade in the 1880s.

This gentle walking tour of the centre of Lichfield takes place in the early evening and features a number of typical Victorian buildings - the Library and the Corn Exchange - and also some of its key Victorian names, such as Sir George Gilbert Scott, Revd James Thomas Law, Colonel Dyott and Edward Shakeshaft. The tour lasts one and a half hours, is suitable for wheelchair access and booking is essential.
