Enjoy Visit Lichfield's Hideous History tour during half term.

Visit Lichfield is inviting you to embrace the autumn season with your youngsters this October half term, on a Hideous History tour.

The tour includes the grisly story of Lichfield’s Market Square and Guildhall Cells in a style most suitable for 6 to 11 year-olds, but everyone is welcome.

Children must be accompanied by a responsible adult.

Councillor Iain Eadie, Lichfield District Council’s Deputy Leader and Cabinet Member for Economic Growth and Development, said:

“Come and learn about Lichfield’s gruesome past on the Hideous History tour.

“It’s a fun activity for all the family to enjoy during the half term break.”

Tour guide Sarah Dale said:

"Take a walk on the dark side. Lichfield's history is fascinating and can send a shiver up your spine."

The 90-minute tours are available at 2pm on Tuesday 25 October and Wednesday 26 October and cost £6 per person.
