I love churches and cathedrals, but really like this one as it's free to enter (though I always gift aid a donation). Like the teddy trail for the youngsters! Architecture is lovely and being an organist, having two in the cathedral is a bonus :-) Shop is also a nice place to visit.

The Cathedral stands out against the landscape and is an iconic picture. Inside the cathedral has all the lovely features you expect: lovely rood screen, stained glass etc. However for me it was spoilt by some very modern "art". All depicting a religious theme however "giant lolly sticks" for me do not fit inside such a building.

I recently visited here with my girlfriend and I was pleasantly surprised! I have never been one for cathedrals or churches but my girlfriend said we should go so I agreed and followed.

Very good food, but can be busy and run out of some things. My disabled daughter who uses an electric wheelchair finds the cathedral one of the few places in Truro which is easily accessible.

Amazing structure and surprisingly recent build. Friendly greeting from staff and a subtle sales pitch for the guide (a reasonable £3) Free entry although £5 donation requested. Not bad to be free to roam such a palatial building.

I was surprised to find out how relatively modern Truro cathedral is, having been completed in the 1910. It is a very tranquil place and the staff are exceedingly helpful and knowledgable, A visit to the tea room is very recommended

Very pleased to visit the Cathedral during the New Year, we'd always wanted to pay our respects to this beautiful place and loved the Christmas Tree - It was in fact one of the best we'd seen, the decorations were splendid!

Saw the Cathedral at night - beautifully lit and magnificent architecture in I believe to be the gothic style. A working church - there was a service going on inside. Very central and easy access - a must see at least!
