The cathedral is a small but lovely building in the heart of Truro. Well worth a visit for its prettiness and tranquillity.

The cathedral seemed narrower than many others and is set right in the town centre. It was a lovely building to visit and the visitor team were very knowledgeable and friendly.

Visible from most of the centre but accessed by quaint narrow streets. Surrounded by lots of independent shops.

I think this is a hidden gem and probably up there with the top five Cathedrals I have visited. Very peaceful and beautiful statues.

My wife and I visited this beautiful Cathedral on 5th June 2018. This Cathedral is simply lovely and awe inspiring. The stonework, windows and artwork were outstanding. We were able to sit and pray and as a special treat there was a piano recital. Wonderful!

The architecture of this building is phenomenal, how it was created is a question beyond being answered. Great to visit for historic and religious findings.

Truro is a city as it has a cathedral. I think St David's in Wales is the smallest city as it too has a cathedral.
