As the only city in the southern English county of Cornwall, Truro plays a key role in the region’s economic and cultural life. With a population of around 20,000 this buzzing community first made its name as a port city before becoming a centre for the Cornish tin-mining industry.
Truro Cathedral is an impressive Gothic Revival structure built over a thirty year period and finished in 1910. Featuring regular services as a well as a cafe and gift shop, the building towers over low-rise Truro and is one of the city’s most striking.
Across the country, Cornwall is best known for its stunning natural beauty. In fact, over a quarter of the county is a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and much of this includes the countryside and coastline around Truro. With quaint fishing villages and dramatic seascapes, Cornwall is home to England’s wildest and most untamed areas of beauty.
