Truro

UK travel information

The most southerly city in England, Truro in Cornwall is a very attractive town that has been in existence for many centuries, and retains much of the charm built into it over the years.

Easily accessed by road, Truro also has a direct rail link to London Paddington Station and is therefore simple to get to. The town is dominated by the outline of Truro Cathedral, a stunning gothic revival creation built around the turn of the 20th century, and by the many typical Georgian buildings that remain throughout the town.
