In the heart of the UK's most stunning county lies the great little city of Truro. 

It is Cornwall's only city fix. It has everything you'd expect from in a modern, well connected city but on a human scale - great shopping, great entertainment and a blossoming food and drink scene.

Truro's heritage is evident in historic architecture, delightful parks and public spaces but at the same time is contemporary, quirky and unique - always welcoming and often surprising.  Here vibrant, local independent shops and market traders rub shoulders with the usual national retailers in an ecletic mix with a creative vibe. Truro has a criss-cross of cobbled roads, browsable streets and magical mews, always rewarding for the curious and quiet joy for the unhurried.

The hugely engaging museum is but a stone's throw from the Hall for Cornwall  - the county's entertainment hub. 

As well as a much loved independent four screen cinema and a growing band of art galleries, rising above it all, is the iconic architecture of our cathedral's three spires.

Visitors will find our great little city filled with friendly pubs, coffee houses and hangouts to settle in as well as funky restaurants and classy eateries.

Truro regularly comes near the top of the UK's most desirable places to live and that makes it a brilliant place to visit too. Like others who "never knew it was there" you will be surprised and delighted and like all the rest you'll want to stay longer. 

Come & visit Our Great Little City.
