Blood Thirsty Lichfield

This Easter, children are invited to go on a guided walking tour of Lichfield’s landmarks to find out horrible facts about the city’s blood thirsty history.

Lichfield District Council’s tourism team, Visit Lichfield, is running a Blood Thirsty Lichfield walking tour this April.

The tour, which is led by a Green Badge guide, will feature stories from Lichfield’s gruesome past, including ghost sightings and burnings at the stake, as well as a visit to the spooky Guildhall Cells.

Sue Baird, Green Badge Guide, said:

“The tour is based on our popular Gruesome and Ghostly tours, but is designed especially for children. It's the ideal way to keep them entertained during the school holidays.”

The Blood Thirsty Lichfield guided tour is on Tuesday 18 April at 10.30am. Tickets cost £4 for both adults and children. All children must be accompanied by an adult.

To book, pop into Tourist Information at its temporary new home at Lichfield Library (from 5 April), email, or call the team on 01543 256611 or 01543 308924 (from 5 April).

There is a wide range of guided tours taking place this spring and summer. To see the full list, go to
