Truro, with its cobbled streets and Georgian architecture is best known for the Cathedral, which was completed in 1910. What a picture it is, a proper job, well worth a visit.
Along the main street you will find a selection of shops and large stores with lots of different items, be sure to allow enough time to look at all of them. Explore the side roads where you will find many small specialist shops. Why not try a lovely cornish pasty or a cream tea.
In days gone by Truro was a famous market town, there is still a regular indoor market which is open all year round, with other specialist markets appearing throughout the seasons.
The oldest museum in Cornwall may be found in Truro, the Royal Cornwall Museum, which often has exhibitions using local themes and archaeology.
In the evenings there is plenty of entertainment, the Hall for Cornwall offers a variety of shows and performing arts, there is also a local cinema. Local pubs and restaurants provide a large selection of food.
Truro Food Festival
A brand new food festival to be held in Truro
We are delighted to announce the launch of a brand new food festival to be held in Truro over the weekend of 27 – 29 September 2019.
The city-wide celebration of Cornish food and drink will be centred around Lemon Quay with pop-up events and activities taking place across the city.
Daytime content will include chef’s demos, a local produce market, gourmet street food stalls, a local restaurant trail, workshops and live entertainment showcasing the best in local talent. The evening content will include a beer and cider festival and live music on all three nights.
The festival will officially be opened with a very special charity benefit gig with all profits donated to the Trussell Trust, a charity that aims to end hunger and poverty in the UK.
We’d love to hear from anyone who would like to be involved and are currently keen to speak to local restaurants and accommodation providers, volunteers, local producers and hot food vendors, potential sponsors and local bands.
