We welcome you to Truro Cathedral hope you enjoy your visit to Cornwall’s only cathedral. To accommodate the increase in visitors, we will be opening other areas of the cathedral in addition to the nave, such as the Retroquire. You will be advised on any measures for these areas by our welcome stewards on arrival. The one-way system will remain in place.
The safety of cathedral staff, volunteers, congregation and visitors is paramount and there are new rules and processes. Details of worship information along with service times can be found on the news page. Please also visit the news section for further information and safety measures in place for both the shop and restaurant.
From 8th August it will be mandatory that face coverings are worn in all cathedral areas. Please be aware masks are mainly intended to protect other people, not the wearer, from coronavirus COVID-19 and that they are not a replacement for social distancing and regular hand washing.
We thank everyone who plans to visit for familiarising themselves in advance with the new rules and processes and look forward to welcoming you to the cathedral. God be with you and enjoy this sacred space.
The cathedral does not receive regular government or Church of England support and is a self-funded organisation. Similarly to other organisations, Truro Cathedral has been financially negatively affected by the Covid-19 pandemic. We are working hard to keep all our visitors, staff and volunteers as safe as possible and continue to offer visitors free entry. Please consider donating during your visit, however small, to help to continue the life and work of the cathedral. Donation boxes for cash donations are accessible in the cathedral but we would recommend that you use the contactless donation station near to the Jesus Chapel on exit. Thank you for your support.
