Welcome to St Mary's in the Market Square, home to Lichfield's Museum. Here you will also find the tourist information centre, along with a cafe / gift shop. We are set in the heart of the city’s bustling shopping area. Make it the first stop in your visit to the district and find out from the information service and the Museum all there is to see in and around the City. The Museum tells the story of 2000 years of Lichfield's history and features a varied mix of displays, exhibitions, and video presentations to take visitors on a journey through time. See the beautiful displays of silver from the City, Diocese and Staffordshire Regiment and view The Staffordshire Millennium Embroideries, a unique representation of a thousand years of Staffordshire’s history. The Museum also contains over 12000 photographs and other material relating to Lichfield's social history. Entry to the Museum is FREE. Do you have a head for heights? Do you want to see stunning views of the City and the best view of the Cathedral? Then look out for our Spire Tours. See the historic Cathedral clock and the 18th century bells on your way to the viewing platform. Whether you are in Lichfield to marvel at its history and heritage, or simply for a good old shopping trip, why not take a rest stop at our ground-floor coffee shop for a revitalising freshly brewed coffee, delightful meal or delicious afternoon tea? Whatever, whenever, you can be sure of a warm and friendly welcome at St Mary's in the Market Square. Come and discover it for yourself! *please contact us to find out when the spire is open to the public.   You can now see a virtual tour of the museum by clicking here   virtual tour
