Ely Cathedral. Too Expensive?

Yet another news item on BBC’s Look East about Ely.

A columnist in this month’s edition of The Oldie magazine claimed the cathedral ‘never stops asking for money’ and that staff are ‘snooty and grasping for money’.

It costs £5.20 to enter the cathedral for tourists, but Look East forgot to mention that residents of Ely are entitled to an annual pass for free!

Do you think you should pay to enter a place of worship or is Ely Cathedral just seen as another money-grabbing tourist attraction?
