“Truro Cathedral has had a wonderful, diverse and compelling life. The Cathedral Choir is rated very highly amongst those in the country. The Father Willis organ is renowned for its magnificent sound. In addition to the services, there are concerts and organ recitals regularly.”

Church
“Once almost buried in the sands, the chapel stands amid the fairways of St. Enodoc Golf Course. Overshadowed by Brea Hill, and nestling among the sand dunes above Daymer Bay, this charming chapel comes as unexpected find for many visitors. An easy walk along the footpaths between the fairways, sometimes dodging golf balls, other times battling Atlantic gales – a visit to St Enodoc is never straightforward, ever different, and always a delight. The former Poet Laureate, Sir John Betjeman was particularly fond of it and he lies buried in the churchyard. There's no direct access for vehicles. It's about a ten minute walk along footpaths from Daymer Bay car park (paying). Open 7.30am-dusk”

Church
“A beautiful church set on the headland with great views of the sea and a dog-friendly footpath to walk along. There is plenty of car parking spaces as well so you can drive there. It is a steep hill to walk up if you decide to go by foot, but worth the effort.”

Church
“This Ancient Cornish Church is at the centre of the lovely village of Lanlivery. Restoration was made possible with strong local charity work and the support of English Heritage in order to create the superb monument that you are able to visit today. Excellent stained glass windows, granite columns, slate floors and a variety of carved wooded bosses in the ceiling enhance the experience. Local exhibitions, music events and flower shows take place regularly and if lucky enough, one may be happening during your visit. Whilst in Lanlivery take advantage of the Crown Inn (see review) for food and drink, and may be continue on your journey to Helman Tor (see review) which is a bit further on. ”
