Winchester Cathedral to start charging

WINCHESTER, England, Feb. 20 (UPI) -- England's Winchester Cathedral plans to cash in on its notoriety as one of the locations for the movie "The Da Vinci Code" by charging admission. The cathedral has been free for tourists, although donations were both accepted and encouraged. But many other historic houses of worship, including Westminster Abbey and Canterbury Cathedral, now charge. While tourists must pay 4 pounds (about $7), worshippers can still enter free. [More]
