Lichfield is Staffordshire's premier heritage city nestled in the heart of the country's most creative county, just north of Birmingham. With a city that's steeped in heritage and a district that's alive with action and adventure, we're well worth a visit!
Packed with things to do and see - including the serenity of the National Memorial Arboretum - there's something to suit all tastes and budgets.
The National Memorial Arboretum includes 150 acres of trees and memorials devoted to the concept of Remembrance. 50,000 trees have been planted and as each tree matures it will provide a variety of woodland areas and open grass spaces.
The aim of this living memorial is to offer families and friends of those who have made the ultimate sacrifice for their country a green and pleasant land to remember their loved ones.
The National Memorial Arboretum was created in 1997 in the centre of England at Alrewas near Lichfield in Staffordshire. It is a living tribute to the personal sacrifices made by the armed and civil services of the United Kingdom.
The rivers Tame and Trent flow through the site and there is an abundance of birdlife and wildlife to be seen, especially in the meadows and on the rivers.
