Welcome to Our Great Little Festive City 

Truro comes alive during the festive period to bring you the very best of everything Christmas. Walk along our cobbled streets with a hot chocolate and listen to the classic Christmas tunes as you pop in and out of the shops on a Wednesday evening. Taste a Cornish Christmas from our award-winning Farmers Market, who are bringing you their biggest Christmas market yet. Revel in the magic of this special time of year as you take your children to meet Father Christmas in our wonderful Cathedral, and prepare to be mesmerised by the Christmas lights both in the City Centre and in Victoria Gardens. However you plan to spend the festive season, we have something for you in Truro.
