Truro and the Roseland Peninsula

At the very heart of tourism and commerce in Cornwall, the historic cathedral city of Truro has something for everyone, providing a base for exploring and with plenty of facilities close at hand.

Its situated just nine miles from the south coast, where the rivers Allen and Kenwyn and later on the river Fal converge to form Truro River. A number of protected areas surround the city, including a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty to the south-east, around Calenick Creek. The Pencalenick historic parklands and the nature reserve at Daubuz Moors are also well worth a visit.

Truro is the top destination in Cornwall for retail. Alongside a wide range of well-known high street stores you will find an array of speciality shops and markets, as well as a good selection of cafes and bistros to visit.

Other attractions include the Royal Cornwall Museum, notable for its varied collections, art gallery and extensive exhibits, with one featuring details of Cornish history and culture. Children are admitted free and will certainly find plenty to keep them amused.

Take a stroll around one of the many stunning parks and open spaces around the city, or you can also cycle. Truro and the surrounding towns and villages feature some fantastic routes, suitable for everyone, from beginners to more experienced cyclists. Bicycle hire is available.

For those wishing to spend some time on the water, you could book a guided kayak tour to take you on an exciting adventure exploring some astonishing locations, such as the Trevauance Cove and Frenchman''s Creek, both situated nearby.
