Visited during a lovely sunny day, were pleasently surprised that it was free entry. Once inside we were overwhelmed by the beauty of the architecture and the sun shining through the beautiful stained glass windows set it off perfectly. A must to visit if in Truro

If you are in Truro then visit here and leave a small donation,it is a worth the visit. The ambiance is a peacefull tranquil feel and although there are sometimes quiet a few visitors there is alwaays a corner to chill and reflect.

Beautiful building. Great atmosphere. Makes you think of all the people that stepped over those floors before you over the hundreds of years

An extraordinary building to visit. There was a exhibition being set up for Remembrance Sunday and I really do wish we could have seen it finished. What we did see was thought provoking and moving, with a wide range of mediums and messages. I trust it was well received by the public.

I love this church, very relaxing and warm atmosphere.. I often come here to light a candle with my children remembering loved ones.. the building looks lovely inside and out (especially when it's lit up from christmas lights in the town) .. lovely high ceilings - just very picturesque building

A lovely cathedral looks medieval but a Victorian addition to Truro. Unusual for its 3 spires its the heart of the city Nice at lunchtime to sit and relish the peace. Also great for concerts as has stunning acoustics

This Cathedral was founded in the 19th century, but not completed until the early 20th century. This is clearly apparent from its design. The initial impression was how light it is inside. Stain glass windows are in abundance, and some of these are situated in the oldest part of the building. No entrance charges here, but donations are of course... More

Tucked away midst the streets of shops it is an imposing building with Victorian Gothic architecture and lovely carvings inside and outside. Inside lovely ornate alter and choir with intricate carvings. On one wall is a fascinating sculpture - Tinworth Sculpture which is worth studying. It features Christ carrying his cross with other biblical figures looking on - some with... More
