We visited in the morning on New Years Eve and found a very peaceful space. It was surprising to learn how relatively recent it was built.

Quite a remarkable building that is more than worth taking a look around, built to open in 1910 it is still mind-blowing to this day

A simple cathedral compared to the ornate nature of some, yet very pretty, especially the stained glass. You would not realise it is just off the high street as it is very serene inside. Worth a visit.

Truro cathedral is a beautiful peaceful place to take a break from the busy streets outside An oasis of calm to reflect, pray or just take a moment to rest . They also have a very good restaurant in the cloisters. Very friendly.

Truro Cathedral was a beautiful cathedral to visit. Reminded me of Westminster Abbey with its unique structure and beautiful decoration in and out. Another great free visit but as always contributing to their funds is a must.
