Garden of Remembrance

A beautiful and peaceful garden in the heart of the city, which is the perfect place to visit for time spent in quiet contemplation.

Following the First World War, the people of Lichfield were anxious to create a memorial to those who had lost their lives.

The spot was chosen because of its picturesque setting between Minster Pool and Cathedral Close. Work on the garden began in 1919 and a ceremony of dedication was held on 20 October 1920.

The three spires of Lichfield Cathedral, often referred to as the Ladies of the Vale, can be seen in the background.

The Garden of Remembrance was restored in 2011/2012 as part of the Lichfield Historic Parks project, which was part funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund and The Big Lottery Fund.

The site belongs to Lichfield City Council. If you spot anything that needs urgent attention, please contact 01543 250011.
