St Mary's in the Market Square

Visit our fantastic visitor centre, which features a beautiful gift shop, a delicious coffee shop, and a museum packed with Lichfield's history and heritage. St Mary's is also home to our tourist information centre.

In our museum, you can walk through 2,000 years of Lichfield's history - varied and interesting exhibitions are displayed, including the unique Staffordshire Millennium Embroideries, two audio visual presentations, fine examples of city, regimental and church silver, and views of the city from the spire viewing platform.

Fun trails are also available for families, and there's one designed specifically for children - just ask for the mousehole trail.

We also host spire climbs, which are a fantastic way to get a view of the city.
