Explore More About Truro:

Truro is a cathedral city and civil parish in Cornwall, England. It is Cornwall's county town, sole city, and center for administration, leisure, and retail trading. Its population was 18,766 in the 2011 census. People of Truro can be called Truronians.

Truro's dominant feature is the Gothic-revival Truro Cathedral, designed by architect John Loughborough Pearson, rising 249 ft (76 m) above the city at its highest spire. It was built in 1880–1910 on the site of St Mary's Church, consecrated over 600 years earlier. Georgian architecture is well represented, with terraces and townhouses along Walsingham Place and Lemon Street often said to be "the finest examples of Georgian architecture west of the city of Bath".

The main attraction of the region is a wide variety of shopping facilities. Truro has various chain stores, specialty shops, and markets that reflect its history as a market town. The indoor Pannier Market is open all year with many stalls and small businesses. The city is also popular for catering and nightlife, with bars, clubs, and restaurants. It houses the Hall for Cornwall, performing arts and entertainment venue.

The Royal Cornwall Museum is the oldest and premier museum of Cornish history and culture. Its collections cover fields such as archaeology, art, and geology. Among the exhibits is the so-called Arthur's inscribed stone. Its parks and open spaces include Victoria Gardens, Boscawen Park, and Daubuz Moors.

In April, Truro prepares to partake in Britain in Bloom competition, with floral displays and hanging baskets dotted around the city throughout the summer. A "continental market" comes to Truro in the holiday-making season, featuring food and craft stalls from France, Spain, Italy, Germany, Belgium, the Netherlands, Greece, and elsewhere.

Cornwall Pride, a Pride event to mark diversity and the LGBT community, takes place on the last Saturday of August. The Truro City Carnival, held every September over a weekend, includes various arts and music performances, children's activities, a fireworks display, food and drinks fairs, a circus, and a parade. A half-marathon organized by Truro Running Club also occurs in September, running from the city center into the country towards Kea, returning to finish at Lemon Quay.

Truro's Christmas includes a Winter Festival with a "City of Lights" paper lantern parade. Local schools, colleges, and community and youth groups join in.[
