Learn about the fascinating past of historic city
People in Staffordshire are being urged to enjoy their new lockdown freedom by going on a guided tour of historic Lichfield. Visit Lichfield's guided tours are starting up again following the easing of lockdown restrictions, enabling small Covid-secure groups to rediscover the city's fascinating and historic past. The socially distanced 'bubble' guided tours offer small groups of family and friends the chance to find out more about Lichfield's historic streets, buildings and personalities. The tours, which were able to resume from May 17 as part of the UK government's roadmap to normal life, can be booked for a time and date that best suits the tour-goers.

Councillor Iain Eadie, Cabinet Member responsible for Tourism at Lichfield District Council, said: "I'm really pleased to see people able to rediscover some of our city tours and just in time for half term. It's another step along the way to getting back to things we enjoyed before the pandemic. The tours are a fantastic way to find out about Lichfield's history and heritage, from Civil War sieges to genius Georgians, there is much to discover!"
