LICHFIELD & THE NATIONAL MEMORIAL ARBORETUM
This is a day to remember in the company of a top notch Blue Badge Tour Guide. This illuminating tour includes a visit to the Erasmus Darwin House in Staffordshire’s premier heritage city and at The National Arboretum we include a 50 minute land train tour of the 150 acre site.
Lichfield is just north of Birmingham. We begin a day to remember here at 10.30am with time to buy morning refreshments before a gentle and flat walking tour to bring out the best in this ancient cathedral City. Where are the Ladies of the Vale? Why was son of Lichfield Samuel Johnson so rude about the Scots? This small city has a lot of contrasts from the bloody history of the Civil War to the genteel elegance of Georgian times with an interesting cast of characters to discover.
We’ll stay in Lichfield for free time for lunch: there’s lots of choice and this not only keeps the tour cost down but it is also designed to give your members time to visit the beautiful Cathedral which offers free entry for individual visitors.
The afternoon is dedicated to the National Memorial Arboretum -
There are some 300 memorials here -
There is a café back in the Remembrance Centre where you can buy tea. A thought provoking day comes to a close when you start the drive home at 4.45pm with plenty to talk about.
