Truro City

Truro City

Truro is the only city in Cornwall. The striking gothic spire of its cathedral dominates the skyline. Home to an intriguing and eclectic mix of art galleries, bars, restaurants, nightclubs, a cinema, the Hall for Cornwall, the Royal Cornwall Museum and numerous independent and well known shops. In a compact city centre, this strong and diverse mix is unique - Truro is a great little City.

The warren of Georgian streets centre around the main shopping plaza, Lemon Quay. Here you will find various local markets and fayres running throughout the year. Truro has a vibrant café culture, with hip coffee houses - we particularly like 108 Coffee House, cocktail bars - we highly recommend The Hub,  and artisan ice cream shops dotted across town.

Small businesses thrive in the UK’s most Southerly City. Take a trip through Lemon Street Market, home to some of the county’s most exciting and innovative interior design shops, or wander around the cobbled streets surrounding the cathedral, home to numerous independant shops. There a various parks and open spaces. Victoria Gardens, a two minute walk from the town centre and close to the impressive railway viaduct, offers peace and tranquillity, with an elegant bandstand, formal gardens and fountains.

The city has well placed car parks and is easily accessible from both the train station and from the river. To truly enjoy the landscape surrounding the city, take a pleasure cruise or water taxi to Falmouth or St. Mawes. The one hour trip, with options to disembark at various points – (a cream tea at Trelissick Gardens shouldn’t be missed) down the River Fal is a wonderful way to spend an afternoon. Take the boat back or catch the picturesque branch line from Falmouth.
