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.

Lovely old Cathedral. No charge for entrance so you can pay a quick visit if you are passing. Very helpful volunteers on hand if you have any questions.
