The historic city of Truro nestles in the valley of three rivers - the Kenwyn, Allen and Truro - just a short distance from the rugged north coast of Cornwall or the gentle beauty of the Roseland Peninsula.
The three spires of the imposing turn of the century cathedral provide a familiar landmark for locals and an impressive focus for visitors.
A celebrated Georgian street graces the southern entrance of Truro and further elegant architecture is to be found within the cobbled streets of the city's excellent shopping centre.
Beautiful parks and gardens, river walks and boat trips allow the visitor to appreciate the tranquility of Truro's quieter corners and surrounding countryside; guided walks reveal the intriguiging history of the city's past.
Truro boasts a first-class theatre and modern multi-plex cinema - both sympathetically restored period building in keeping with the city's character.
Other rainy-day attractions include the Royal Cornwall Museum, ten-pin bowling, swimming pool and indoor and farmers markets.
All tastes are catered for in the city's many pubs and restaurants - continental cafe bars, international cuisine, vegetarian,fast food, Cornish cream teas and, of course, pasties - and in the evening the entertainment continues in the local pubs, wine bars and nightclubs.
An abundance of warm and welcoming accommodation is available within the city and surrounding areas, should your requirements be hotel, guest house, B&B or holiday park.
Easy accessible by road or rail, Truro makes an ideal base for a family holiday or a quiet getaway. Population 21,000
