Truro Cathedral, Truro

4.4
Never failing to inspire awe, Truro Cathedral soars above the surrounding rooftops and dominates the city skyline. Built between 1880 and 1910, the cathedral was designed in the Gothic Revival style, which was fashionable during much of the 19th century. The site is noted for being one of only three cathedrals in the United Kingdom with three spires. Located in the middle of the city and surrounded by numerous shops and restaurants, the cathedral offers informative guided tours on a daily basis. Begin or end your educational visit at the on-site coffee shop, where you can enjoy a hot cup of tea and a light snack. Be sure to pick up a souvenir of your trip at the cathedral’s popular gift shop. Plan to visit Truro Cathedral during your Truro vacation using our convenient Truro vacation trip planner.

  • Fine example of a Victorian cathedral. Very good concerts offered.
  • Wonderful architecture, well worth a visit to see the three magnificent stained glass rose windows, the marvellous reredos and the Quire carvings. Look out also for the terracotta sculpture in the north quire aisle.
  • We bring our son in her every so often as there's nothing else really like it locally. He loves it so that makes us happy.
  • Lovely cathedral the kids enjoyed the activities they had going on that day
  • Amazing location with oodles of history, well worth a visit.
