Campers 

Important News for those of us staying overnight in Beacon Park:

There are excellent catering facilities on site during the day.
 In the evenings there are many first class eating houses and pubs locally. Three are of note for campers.

The Carvery at The George Hotel is excellent. The Rotary Club meet at the hotel every Tuesday and we cannot recommend it highly enough.
 

For those of us looking to concentrate on a good drink when camping out the two finest ale houses in Lichfield, without any shadow of a doubt (in the opinion of the members of the CitP committee who have carried out an in depth and continuous survey) are The Queens Head and The George and Dragon. 

In the evenings both offer excellent beers and simple fayre by way of rolls and ploughman’s. Both Pubs are within a 3 minute walk of Beacon Park with the Queen’s Head perhaps having the edge as you don’t have to cross any roads to get to it! 

If you get chance, and you enjoy a good pint, then you could do worse than pay a visit to either of these two traditional Marstons pubs.

Beacon Park is ideally situated in the heart of Lichfield city and is a perfect destination for anyone who enjoys being outdoors. Dating from 1800, Beacon Park provides 100 acres of beautiful formal gardens, open space and leisure facilities. Take one of the paths that meander through the park and see the statues of King Edward VII and Captain Smith of Titanic fame, admire the fountain and enjoy the rose gardens. Continue on the paths and wonder past the Crown Bowling Green and tennis courts, round to Beacon Pool, which is fed by Leomansley Brook, the playing fields, play area and golf course. Relax and feed the ducks or take part in one of the many activities on offer.

Lichfield Cathedral

The Cathedral is the spiritual centre of the Church of England’s Diocese of Lichfield. The praises of God have been sung on this site, and the Gospel of Jesus Christ proclaimed in the power of the Holy Spirit, for over 1300 years.

It is a place full of history and beauty, which has been an inspiration to generations of visitors. But it is also a community of people, delighted to practise hospitality to tourists and Christian pilgrims alike.

Do come and visit us. You are sure of a warm welcome.
