We visited Tamworth and St Editha's church which is located in the centre of the town near the busy market area. It is a lovely historic church dating back to Saxon times. It has a large tower and the church is worth visiting inside and...More

Just called in from the hustle and bustle of town shopping and had a quick look round. Would like to return to look in more detail. The ladies on duty were very friendly and welcoming without wanting to push information at you.

Its Tamworth's main church and rather fine. Currently undergoing repairs but it is still open to go in and look around. There are guides to assist and coffee and various other things to buy.

Beautiful stained glass windows. The bell tower has only one stable wall. The internal wall has no windows as they break when the bells are rung. The stairs are rare as they have a double helix spiral. Access by the public to the tower is...More

This Anglican church is most definitely one of the highlights of Tamworth town. Its architecture is fascinating. It is apparently the largest medieval parish church in Staffordshire and stands prominently in the town centre. Most of it dates from 14th and 15th centuries. One can...More

I do believe so, we visited Tamworth and just went into the Church. As they has a couple of staff inside I would say it open at least 6 days a week. Sundays of course for services.
