Learn about city's fascinating history and characters
From Civil War battles through to enlightened Georgian figures, there is so much history and heritage to discover with a socially distanced guided tour of Lichfield city centre in Staffordshire. Following the easing of coronavirus lockdown restrictions, Visit Lichfield's team of enthusiastic and knowledgeable guides are happily now able to resume their guided tours with a series of Discover Lichfield Tours. The tours were put on hold earlier in the year due to the Covid-19 lockdown but now, with social distancing measures in place, they are making a welcome return. Interested people are invited to choose from a series of dates in September to enjoy a relaxing walk around Lichfield's historic streets and hear from a guide who will share interesting facts about the city, its architecture and former inhabitants.
Teresa Gilmore, Visit Lichfield tour guide, said: "I am really looking forward to leading more tours and sharing some of the fascinating stories that have shaped our beautiful city. We will be taking extra precautions to keep everyone safe, including wearing a visor, limiting tour numbers to ten, checking that no tour-goers have had any symptoms of the virus, and asking everyone to bring hand sanitiser with them and to socially distance during the tours."
