Shop till you drop in Lichfield District.

There’s nothing better than finding the perfect getaway for the weekend to blow the cobwebs away, and you’re guaranteed to discover your ideal short break in Lichfield District this summer. 

After the last year we all deserve a treat, so why not book yourself a short break and spoil yourself rotten? We’ve got everything you’ll need, including some wonderful hotels for a luxury break.

What better way to treat yourself than to shop till you drop? Lichfield District is packed full of independent shops you won’t find anywhere else, so you’re guaranteed to go home with plenty of unique finds.

In the city centre, there’s a wide range of shops along our historic streets like Dam Street and in our open air Three Spires Shopping Centre and Tudor Row. You can also take a short drive to one of our shopping villages: Heart of the Country or Curborough Hall Farm Countryside Centre.

Don’t forget to book in some culture with an evening at the theatre. The award-winning Lichfield Garrick has a great programme of live performances as well as recorded shows and movies in its cinema, so you’re bound to find something to entertain you.

Enjoy the historic atmosphere of The Hub at St Mary’s, which offers seasonal exhibitions and performances for everyone.

Finally, treat yourself to amazing food, sweet treats, cocktails or a relaxed afternoon in one of our historic inns.
