Our Great Little City will capture your heart and you’ll certainly want to learn more. Hear the tales of Truro on a guided walking tour, or discover Cornwall’s history and heritage at the Royal Cornwall Museum. Of course, no trip to Truro is complete without a visit to the gothic-style cathedral, where you can join a tour, attend a service, and take part in family activities.

The city is also a hive of entertainment and culture. The Hall for Cornwall wows audi-ences with dazzling west-end shows, popular music performers, and hilariously funny come-dians; the Old Bakery Studios hosts fabulous alternative arts acts; and the city’s art galleries showcase contemporary craft and modern British art.

Whilst we may be a small city, we boast an abundance of outdoor space. Our picture-perfect parks offer quiet spots to relax in the sun and dine alfresco, and the leafy woodlands are a peaceful place for a stroll in the fresh air.
