Grade I listed Duke of Cornwall's Palace, was built as the administrative centre for the Duchy at the end of 13th century when Lostwithiel was Cornwall's principal port. It contained a large Great Hall, and the Exchequer Hall where taxes due on smelted tin were collected. The Palace became ruinous in the 17th century. From 1878 it was a Freemasons' temple, becoming redundant in 2008. It was purchased by the UK Historic Building Preservation Trust in 2009 who have conserved and repaired it.
