Visitor Information

We are thrilled to welcome visitors from all over the world for worship, to pray, or experience the rich history and heritage of the church and town. The church is open every day and we aim to make your visit an engaging and memorable experience.

Hospitality

The church is open every day, but whilst we do our best to cater to visitors, as you will appreciate as a working church there are certain occasions when public access is not possible. Please phone ahead if you would like to check in advance of your visit.

 

St. Editha's boasts a brand new cafe and Tamworth's only Christian bookshop - please click here for further details.

Parking / Station
There are several parking spaces directly opposite the church. Two large pay-and-display car parks are located less than 100m away: NCP Gungate (B79 7BD - 300 spaces / 45p per hour) and Hospital Street (B79 7EB - 60 spaces / 70p per hour). If you are visiting St. Editha's for a concert or event we recommend using these car parks as the area outside church gets extremely busy.

 

If arriving by train, Tamworth Station is just a 5 minute walk from the church.

​Guided tours
We offer regular, free short guided tours on most days when a guide is present. However if preferred for a small fee by prior arrangement we can arrange a more in-depth tour by a local historian. Please get in touch for further details. Due to health and safety requirements, access to the historic tower is by prior arrangement only.

If you are planning a group visit please let us know and we can make special arrangements to tailor tours for specific interests.

 

Accessibility

Whilst we make every effort to ensure that the church is accessible to wheelchair users, because of the nature of the building a few areas are not accessible. If any help whatsoever is needed please get in touch before your visit and we will do our best to help wherever possible.

​Washrooms
Facilities are available.

Photography and videography
The church is a sacred place to which people come to pray and visit undisturbed and, in order to preserve the atmosphere of the sacred space, photography is not generally permitted within the church. This includes the use of digital cameras, video cameras and mobile phones. Exceptions can be made for special occasions, events and professional photography- please contact us for further information.
