Visitors love Lichfield for its shops, cafes, parks and history. So, imagine how amazing it would be to have all that on the doorstep of your business.

In our fantastic cathedral city, several buildings have business space to rent, and many of them are just a short walk away from the historic, bustling streets and peaceful parks that Lichfield is famous for.

One minute you could be entertaining customers in the city’s many restaurants, cafes or pubs, and the next you could be notching your step count up a level with a picturesque walk around Stowe Pool and Cathedral Close.

When it comes to cafes in Lichfield, we really are spoilt for choice. But a particular favourite is The Bureau in Market Street, where coffees can turn to cocktails as they are open from morning till late – perfect for entertaining customers.

The city stands out for having not one, but two train stations – so no matter where your client is based they are sure to be able to find a train to Lichfield. Just a few minutes’ walk from the city train station there are places to stay that will add a memorable touch to their visit. Why not get them booked into St John’s House, which is a luxury bed and breakfast with individually styled bedrooms. There is also space to have a business meeting or conference.

It's no wonder so many businesses choose to base themselves in Lichfield with its connections to high-speed road networks which include the M6 Toll, A5 and A38. Once away from the busy roads the city can be an oasis of calm. Visitors can be inspired by the many iconic buildings, including the Guildhall and the Tudor Café in Bore Street, as well as The Hub at St Mary’s. The Hub features incredible art exhibitions – the one at the moment, which runs until June 4th, is an installation of the Earth taken from NASA imagery. Measuring seven metres in diameter this 3d rendering of our planet will make you feel like an astronaut – except at The Hub you can have a yummy slice of cake and a cuppa, and it won’t float away.

If you want more, then Lichfield has a packed itinerary of things to see and do, ranging from street festivals to fun events in the parks. Summer is particularly busy, and the ever-popular Lichfield Festival in July is a favourite with many and takes place over 11 days. There are several diverse arts experiences designed to appeal to all, from dance and drama to classical music and comedy, so you certainly won’t be bored.

Now that the sun is starting to shine it could be time to take your lunch outside, so head to Beacon Park, find a bench and marvel at the beautiful scenery. Make your lunch a bit special with a delicious sandwich or cake from one of the city’s bakeries. There is plenty of choice with Bore Street Bakery and Hindley’s coming out as favourites with visitors and residents.

Lichfield is a great location for any business – and the prestige your new address will bring should impress both clients and employees alike. If you are looking for somewhere to base your business, now could be the ideal time to set down your company’s roots in Lichfield.
