Truro is Cornwall’s fourth largest town according to the 2011 census. Curiously enough, it is also the only city in Cornwall, thanks to an historic change in 1877 when it was separated from the diocese of Exeter and given its own bishop. The town grew from an iron age settlement and in the 12th century became a significant town after the castle was built. Truro became a coinage, or stannary town in 1327, which meant it held the status of being able to mine coins from the locally mined tin.

Truro station was first opened in 1859 and is today the busiest station in Cornwall. During the 1860s Truro Station revolutionised trade in Cornwall, as it allowed merchants to distribute their goods, which arrived by boat, throughout the rest of the country. The station provides easy access to Penzance as well as the rest of the country via the CrossCountry network.

Facilities at Truro Station include 150 car parking spaces, and bicycle parking is also available. The car park is wheelchair-friendly and includes three accessible spaces. Truro Station is also served by more than twenty different bus routes making it easy to start or continue your journey.

Things to do in Truro

Truro is a town famous for its Georgian and Gothic architecture, as well as its important role in Cornwall’s history through trade and tin and copper mining. Truro Cathedral was completed in 1910 with modern construction techniques in the older gothic style. The Cathedral is unusual in that construction started after Truro had been granted its city status. The site of the three-spired Cathedral incorporated an earlier church which dates from as far back as 1518.

You might be surprised to learn that Truro has no castle today. While there are many excellent examples of castles around Cornwall, Truro Castle was levelled in 1840. Today Truro Crown Court stands in its place. You can learn more about the history of the town at the Royal Cornwall Museum which is only a few minutes’ walk from Truro Station.

Truro Station is also your gateway to Cornwall’s area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. One of Truro’s biggest draws is its annual ‘City of Lights’ event which takes place each December. This festival includes the official switching on of the Christmas lights and a lantern parade.

The city is a popular shopping destination too and home to national chains as well as several local independent stores. You can find over thirty traders at the Pannier Market too.

As you walk around the ancient cobbled streets, you will notice that Truro sometimes reminds you of Bath. This is because Bath stone was used in the construction of properties on Princes Street and Lemon Street. Take a trip to Bath Spa when you have time and see for yourself how the two cities compare.

There is lots more to see, learn and discover in Truro, so book your journey with CrossCountry today.
