  • Built around the 1880's, Truro cathedral is beautiful. The Christmas tree outside is always worth visiting, this year covered in fake snow. Admission is of course free with an optional donation £5-10 I believe, and you can currently help to refurbish the cathedral by sponsoring a slate tile for the roof with your own message for either £5 or £25. Worth visiting!
  • Love this place. Such a warm and lively place. With quiet niches for personal reflection.
  • A breath taking building in the heart of city.
  • Stunning place absolutely visiting again
  • Worth a visit
