Great shopping with its own cathedral. Farmers market every Wednesday and Saturday. Try sailing from here to Falmouth!

A pretty little city with cobbled streets, mix of architecture and good selection of shops, cafes and restaurants it is a good place to explore. Why not take the boat from the centre to Falmouth as an alternative travel option.

The Cathedral City of Truro blends cosmopolitan living with the quaintness of Cornwall. With lots of high street shops and independent sellers there is lots to explore! There are plenty of places to eat too!

Local from Fowey

A splendid cathedral and lots of independent shops, Truro is a fabulous place to get some shopping in, visit the theatre or enjoy a romantic meal. Here you will find some of the larger stores as well as local shops and a lovely Piazza with a local produce market and Al fresco dining. Hall for Cornwall has many productions throughout the year.
