Local Attractions

Our location makes us ideal accommodation for many local attractions. We are convenient for historic places of interest like Shugborough Hall, a National Trust property and ancestral home of Lord Lichfield. Lichfield itself is steeped in heritage, with its skyline dominated by the three spires of the magnificant Lichfield Cathedral. The city is rich in culture, with numerous festivals throughout the year (see www.lichfieldarts.org.uk and the Lichfield Garrick theatre for details).
