Car & Van Rental in Lichfield?
The cathedral city of Lichfield is 15 miles north of Birmingham in Staffordshire. A rich heritage typifies this city, with its ecclesiastical roots still visible even today in the mediaeval streets and architecture. The old cultural traditions of the locals promise visitors here a unique perspective and an unforgettable experience. Red sandstone is a significant part of Lichfield, and besides underlying a majority of the region, it is present in the older buildings, such as the Church of St. Chad. The city lies in the valleys of the rivers Tame and Trent, with several ridges characterising its physical landscape. With its fresh country air and historical attractions, Lichfield is an ideal destination when seeking relaxation and enlightening adventures. Enterprise Rent-A-Car understands the value of an appropriate vehicle when holidaying in the city.
Our Vehicles for Hire in Lichfield
For larger groups or parties with excessive luggage we have a range of people carriers. When your visit to Lichfield involves a few friends or family members, then a people carrier is an obvious choice. The space on the roof and at the back is sufficient for sizeable luggage, so you won’t have to get separate vehicles for passengers and your bags. A mini bus is great for even larger groups and, depending on the model, will have space for up to nine people and still leave enough room for your belongings.
If you are faced with sub-optimal weather or want to hit some of the country roads, an SUV is ideal. When it comes to standard cars, we have an assortment of models and sizes. A coupe or convertible is just right for a tour of the nearby countryside, as you discover the intricate details of the city’s rural history. For a small family, a compact or large premium has the necessary space and efficient transport requirements. Our car hire service in Lichfield also includes commercial vans for clients with comprehensive size demands, such as when moving house.
Attractions in Lichfield
With so many attractions in Lichfield, a car offers you the exclusive opportunity to create your own journey itinerary and view everything at your own pace. The Lichfield Cathedral is the most notable attraction, as it is the only three-spired medieval cathedral in Europe. Tourists can take in the wonder of the incredible Close that still has leftovers of the medieval fortifications. The Friary was established in 1209 by the Franciscan Friars, and its ruins are still visible, with beautiful gardens providing a stunning background. Lichfield was home to Samuel Johnson; he wrote the first Dictionary of the English Language, and there is a museum that commemorates his works.
If fishing is part of your holiday activities, then the Stowe Pool, close to the city centre, will be just the thing for you. Some of the species available include perch, roach, pike and carp. It also provides a habitat for several endangered animals, waterfowl and other birds. You can drive to the National Memorial Arboretum in Alrewas, some 4 miles to the north-east, where people pay tribute to the armed services. The Staffordshire Regiment Museum, Prince Rupert’s Mount, the National Forest Adventure Farm, Museum Gardens, Minster’s Pool and Walk, the Garden of Remembrance, and Conkers - which are all found in the National Forest - are sights to watch out for.
