Truro is Cornwall’s only city with the inevitable hubbub of shops, bars and eateries. A holiday in Truro is an ideal option for those wanting all the amenities of a city, as well as the coast and countryside.

The city has a fascinating history. Truro was an important port and tin mining centre in Cornwall and featured heavily within the BBC's drama series Poldark, though none of the filming was in Truro itself. You can still find many fine Georgian style houses along Lemon Street. At the top of which is the Lander Memorial, erected to commemorate the local Lander brothers, who discovered the source of the Nile.

Venture from your accommodation in Truro into its bustling centre. Here you will find the city’s main piazza at Lemon Quay, with various high street shops. At Pannier Market, you can find an abundance of fascinating objects as well as groceries and other foodstuffs, clothes and souvenirs. Close by is the Hall for Cornwall, the main venue in the city for theatre productions and plays. There is a regular flea market held here selling a variety of products from jewellery to vintage clothing, local art and second-hand books.

The relatively young cathedral dominated the skyline of Truro, towering above the lower roofs around the city. The cathedral is in the centre of Truro, with a pretty, cobbled area to the front that is popular with buskers and street performers.

From your accommodation in Truro you can easily explore the Roseland Peninsula, as well as towns like Falmouth and St Austell.
