Why we LOVE Truro...

Just 45 minutes away from Penzance in the car or on the train is the city of Truro. Well know for its pretty cobbled street and beautiful Cathedral. Truro is the definite stop off when you are in Cornwall.

Truro's most recognisable feature is its Gothic- revival Cathedral, designed by architect John Loughborough Pearson and rising 76 m (249 ft) above the city at its highest spire. It took 30 years to build, from 1880 to 1910, and was built on the site of the old St. Mary's Church, consecrated over 600 years earlier. Enthusiasts of Georgian architecture are well catered for in the city, with terraces and town houses along Walsingham Place and Lemon Street often said to be "the finest examples of Georgian architecture west of the city of Bath. 

Truro also has a fantastic variety of shops- it has the perfect mix of well known chain stores and quirky one off gems such as Uneeka a beautiful shop sealing clothes, jewellery and lovely little gifts and tucked away upstairs is a great cafe to grab that mid morning coffee and light bite! 

From 28th November there will be a Christmas Ice rink outside the Cathedral for the festive season! So get your boots on and we'll see you on the rink.
