Truro è il centro amministrativo, ricreativo e commerciale della Cornovaglia, con una popolazione di 21.000 abitanti. È l’unica città della contea e la città più a sud della Gran Bretagna.

Truro initially grew as an important centre of trade from its port, and then as a stannary town for the mining industry. The city is well-known for its cathedral (completed in 1910), cobbled streets, open spaces and Georgian architecture, and places of interest include the Royal Cornwall Museum and the Hall for Cornwall, the largest theatre in Cornwall offering a mix of live theatre shows from musicals, children’s shows, gigs, drama, plays and music shows.

The Cathedral of the Blessed Virgin Mary, is an Anglican cathedral located in the town centre. It was built in the Gothic Revival architectural style fashionable during the period, and is one of only three cathedrals in the United Kingdom with three spires. The central tower and spire stands 76 m tall, while the western towers reach to 61 m.

Truro Cathedral is situated right in the city centre and sadly does not have a car park for the general public. There are many pay and display car parks in the city centre, and park and ride systems if you don’t want to drive in the town.

There are regular bus and train services to Truro from all around Cornwall. There is even a passenger ferry service from Falmouth and St Mawes, when tides allow.
