Group visit feedback 

'We thoroughly enjoyed our visit to Lichfield. From the helpful and friendly staff in the tourist office to the guides, so knowledgeable and enthusiastic, to the city itself, it was a wonderful day. Lichfield is certainly a city that many of our members will visit again. Many thanks to everyone on behalf of Warwick District U3A members.'   Maggie Watts -  April 2019
