Truro

is an ancient market town which still retains its rural market atmosphere and character. Perhaps go by one of the most beautiful river stretches from St Mawes and catch the bus back?

Truro's neo-gothic cathedral, built during the late 19th century, dominates the city centre in a quite remarkable way but does not detract from the charm of some of the Georgian cobbled streets.

The Royal Cornwall Museum and Art Gallery presents exciting exhibitions, entrance is free, tells the story of both Truro and Cornwall, including its mining history.

A great deal of change has taken place in Truro in recent years but many of the winding streets and bye-ways of the central area survive, as do thoroughfares and buildings of the Georgian and Regency periods. Lemon Street is lined by elegant Georgian buildings (including the Royal Hotel) and at the top of its long gentle slope is the prominent Lander Monument.

There are two busy covered markets and on the outskirts of Truro in Newquay road is one of the most modern livestock markets that serve the whole of Cornwall.

Truro has the plaza cinema in Lemon Street and a surprisingly wide range of venues for 'live' events.

Every Wednesday of the year (except during August) folk dancing can be enjoyed at Playing Place Community Centre.

The Cathedral is home, throughout the year, to a variety of concerts and is the venue each June for the Three Spires Festival.

Alongside Truro River is Boscawen Park, the city's main open space, with tennis courts, cricket, football and hockey playing pitches. Opposite the park is the lovely Swan Pool with a pleasant circular walk.

Gardens. Truro is a regular winner in the national Britain in Bloom floral competition. In summer the city is ablaze with colour with its planting schemes and hanging baskets. The city has two public parks which are popular with visitors and families alike.

Also providing major "open space" is the River Fal which, between Truro and Falmouth (14 miles), is one of the most beautiful stretches of water in this country.

Other Amenities: Truro Bowl (10 pin bowling), multi screen cinema, leisure centre with swimming pool, tennis club, cricket club, lawn bowling, football and rugby clubs, squash club, golf club
