Latest reviews | Events in Lichfield | 10 Places to Stay

In 1776 Dr Samuel Johnson took his friend Boswell to Lichfield to show him "genuine civilised life in an English provincial town". The description still rings true today, for although Lichfield has grown considerably, it still retains its civilised charm and many of the fine buildings at the heart of the City, including the house in which Johnson was born, have remained largely unchanged over the intervening centuries.

The 20th century has seen large increases in population, particularly in the period from the 1950's onward when the city as earmarked for overspill housing from the West Midlands conurbation. The population has almost trebled since 1951, but the changes prompted by the new housing and incoming families have brought vitality and prosperity to the city.

Although only a few miles of green belt separate the city from Birmingham, Lichfield has retained its separate identity, together with a strong sense of pride in its local community.Lichfield is particularly fortunate in the large areas of pools and parkland which bring a wedge of countryside to the very heart of the city. There is a wealth of local groups, sports clubs, and societies, and a wide range of social and recreational activities.

Visitors to the City find plenty to interest them in the historic streets, buildings and old traditions, and are amazed that a city with to much to offer is relatively unknown on the tourist trail. But the overriding attraction of the city is its quiet and unspoilt charm. There is a fast and frequent train service to Birmingham and a and the new M6(Toll) motorway now skirts the southern boundary of the city, once more placing Lichfield on the main route between London and the north west. A major new development of the shopping precinct is now complete, bringing many large shops to supplement the excellent range of specialist traders for which the city is renowned. Population 28,000
