You are warmly invited to join us for this year’s Cathedral Trip, which will take place on Saturday, 13 May 2017, departing by 9am and returning by 7pm. This year’s destination will be Coventry. The city’s Cathedral Quarter contains a surprising number of fine buildings, considering the Second World War bombing with which the city is now associated. Close to the spectacular New Cathedral are the Old Cathedral ruins, Blitz Museum, Holy Trinity Church, Herbert Art Gallery & Museum, and the spectacular mediaeval St Mary’s Guildhall (featured in Michael Wood’s Story of England). A short walk takes you to the recently-refurbished Transport Museum, where Coventry’s continuing automotive history is celebrated.
The Cathedral has excellent visitor facilities, including the recently-opened ‘Rising’ Café which has excellent reviews on Trip Advisor.
The cost of the trip will be £18 per person, which includes coach travel and entrance to the Cathedral and Blitz Museum.
Stephen will provide a history and guided tour of the Cathedral. We intend to be in the building for the short Litany of Reconciliation at noon, and will attend Choral Evensong (optional) at 4pm prior to departing.
To reserve your places, please contact Madeleine (firstname.lastname@example.org, 07881 782559). Cheques should be made payable to “Wheathampstead PCC
