“Visit every year,”
Review of Truro Cathedral

Truro Cathedral
Ranked #1 of 42 things to do in Truro
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed February 6, 2013

We go to Truro every year and we visit the Cathedral every time. Its very beautiful inside and well worth a walk around. There is usually someone there on a sunday, whether it be the person taking the service or a volunteer to tell you a bit about the place. We found out that it is not just a cathedral but a church as well (half and half). Very quiet and a nice quiet place to go to remember or think.

Rather than chase you for a donation. They sell you a very good guide book. Which is worth more than a donation. The Christmas decorations were smashing. Toilets clean. Staff helpful Beautiful building. If you go to Truro visit it. Note car parks are bit expensive. There is a park and ride but does not seem to be publicised

Lots to see and just a beautiful place. Did not appreciate my children being told off for quietly walking down the disabled ramp left by side of alter quite as sternly as they were told but hey ho I am sure if a higher power was watching they would have chuckled. Cafe a it messy but nice cuppa

Beautiful architecture truly breathtaking. Restaurant is very good as is the cathedral shop. Have attended several services here and also like to come just to take in the atmosphere and use the restaurant and shop. Recommended whether or not you are a Christian just for the superb building and the atmosphere.

Small but impressive cathedral, take the time to look up as you wander around. Not as grand as the likes of Durham cathedral, but a little gem. We attended the annual pet service between Christmas and New Year, it was great. Evetryone had pets with them from dogs dressed up in fairy lights and tinsel, to ducks, hamsters, cats and rabbits. The service was aimed at children and pets, just 50 minutes with carols, and the pets went to be blessed by the vicar. TV screens around the aisled so you could see all the animal antics, and the noise was immense,, but my 8 year old enjoyed it. A great introduction to the church for younger children, or for those who attend stuffy old fashioned church services.
