Visiting with children

Truro Cathedral is a place of discovery, learning and fun for all the family. It is a wonderful place to explore with children and there are two explorer trails for you to enjoy and learn more about the cathedral together:

A Cathedral for Cornwall (for ages 4-7)

Bishops and Builders (for ages 8-11)

During the school holidays, we regularly have seasonal-themed family quiz trails available with clues to find around the Cathedral and a small prize for completed quiz sheets.

All explorer and quiz trails are available for £1 each from our shop, restaurant and café.

To the side of the Cathedral, behind our shop, you will find the Cathedral Green, perfect as an outdoor space to stretch your legs and enjoy the fresh air during or after your visit. Alongside the Green is our new Common Grounds café, with indoor and outdoor seating, where you can relax and take in the fabulous view of the outside of the cathedral building as you enjoy our locally produced artisan coffee and delicious cakes.

Our main restaurant has a children’s menu and high-chairs.  Baby changing facilities are available close by in the accessible toilet.

We have family-friendly events and concerts across the year, so please check our What's On page to see what hours the cathedral will be open, and what activities and events are taking place when planning your visit.
