Truro, the UK’s most southerly city is a vibrant centre of shopping, culture and impressive architecture right in the heart of Cornwall.

Centre stage is Truro Cathedral with its impressive gothic towers dominating the skyline. In its shadow, a warren of compact streets are home to an impressive array of independent traders. From boutiques to bookshops and designer interiors to delicatessens, this great little city offers a unique shopping experience. The café culture is pretty impressive too, with hip coffee houses, artisan ice creameries and cocktail bars dotted across the centre.

There is a year long festival programme, weekly food markets and several art galleries, cultural events and historical attractions. Visit the Royal Cornwall Museum, the Shelterbox Centre or just sit in the plaza and watch the locals pass by.
