Really worth taking the time to visit this beautiful late Victorian masterpiece in the gothic style. The huge expanse of stained glass is particularly fine and the soaring granite gothic arches are so elegant. It incorporates an older church very cleverly.

My wife and I visited Truro cathedral on our visit to Truro. We popped in and walked around and went to the visitors shop and left. Our whole visit took about 15 minutes, and we saw the whole cathedral. Grand it is not, but it's got a great ceiling and is a wonderfully maintained building. The cathedral is still used... More

Personally I am always pleasantly surprised by the great shop they have there. Not just selling religious things, but all manner of gifts you wouldn't find elsewhere.

Not the oldest in the land, but those soaring neo-gothic/'early English' curves and the stained glass windows are special. And the volunteer ladies at the entrance could not have been more helpful and informative.

We were surprised to learn this cathedral was built in Victoria times, so relatively young. Lovely place to walk round, very interesting and free entry, though they do ask if you would like to buy a booklet to help keep entry free. If you like Cathedrals it's worth a visit.

This is an outstandingly beautiful Cathedral. Sit, look up and enjoy. Talk a stroll with the Cathedral and light a candle for a lost loved one. Very good shop on site too.

This Cathedral mainly built of Cornish Granite was created in a medieval Gothic Architectural style, with its characteristic arches, beautiful Rose windows and soaring spires with many features such as towers, windows, pillars and carvings in a softer Bath stone is something you must see. Entry is FREE. Tours are available by Cathedral Stewards and Chaplains who will make the... More
