Guided tours and familiarisation visits

Our fully qualified Green Badge Guides provide city tours with optional extras such as visits to various attractions, morning coffee, afternoon tea, lunch or cream teas. Tours in some overseas languages are also available. Standard tours last around one and a half hours, but the time and topic can easily be arranged to suit each group. To see the range of tours we offer, visit our guided tours page.

We also hold familiarisation visits for group organisers every year to help group organisers find out about the attractions and facilities we offer.

On Tuesday 1 October 2013, 56 members of a Lutheran Church Choir visited Lichfield. The group's visit to Lichfield was part of a week’s activity tour of the Heart of England, which included a visit to Coventry, Stratford upon Avon and Oxford.

They were treated to a guided city tour with two of the city’s Green Badge Guides and they  also enjoyed a guided tour of Lichfield Cathedral.

The choir also participated at the Evensong service, including a performance of a German anthem.

The Lutheran churches of Hamburg are twinned with the Lichfield diocese and the Visit Lichfield team hope to welcome them again soon.
