Lichfield Cathedral Tower Tours offer a thrilling experience for all the family as well as unparalleled views of the city of Lichfield and beyond. As you climb the medieval staircase of the great central tower of the Cathedral, you will be guided through the magnificent architecture of the historical building. Half way up the tower, you’ll be given the opportunity to explore the interactive Tower Education Zone. The Tower Education Zone provides the chance to learn about the design and architecture of the building, its location, geography and history from Anglo-Saxon times, though the Middle Ages right up to the present day. Of particular interest will be the information describing the Cathedral’s role during the English Civil War, Lichfield is unique in being the only Cathedral in the country to have had a moat. The outline and fortifications can be seen from the top of the tower. Activity tables and displays will help children and adults to identify fascinating and sometimes hidden aspects of the Cathedral building and its life. Once you reach the top of the tower, you can enjoy spectacular views of Lichfield – a view you won’t get anywhere else! The tours are back with a twist this year, leading you across the Cathedral roof, and down through the North West Tower. Tours run every Saturday and Bank Holiday, 11am and 2pm. Tickets are available from Lichfield Cathedral Shop, No.9 The Close, Lichfield | 01543 306150.
