We spend the first part of the day in the historic Cathedral City of Lichfield. The first cathedral was consecrated on Christmas Day 700. A new cathedral was build by the Normans following the 1066 invasion and then re-built in the gothic style, being completed in c1340. It suffered severe damage in the Civil War, being besieged three times. The interior was re-arranged in the 18thC, and restored in the 19thC, resulting in the building you see today. It is the only 3-spired cathedral in the UK.

Other Lichfield attractions include the Erasmus Darwin House (grandfather of Charles Darwin) and Samuel Johnson Birthplace Museum (author of the first English dictionary). The Old Guildhall Prison Cells have been on this site since 1548. See original cells, discover the inmates' stories and find out about law and order in Lichfield in this small display.

After lunch we move on to the National Memorial Arboretum. The Arboretum is an evolving, maturing woodland landscape featuring 30,000 trees and a vast collection of memorials. The 150-acre site is a living, growing tribute to those who have served and continue to serve our country. The Arboretum is home to over 350 thought-provoking memorials, each with a story to be discovered. The memorials are diverse in nature, rich in symbolism and collectively represent a broad population of society from military associations, charitable organisations, emergency services, fraternity groups and individuals. Each year new memorials are added so there's always something new to see.
