Truro is a small city located in the South West of England, this is the UK's most southern city and the only one in the county of Cornwall. Despite being a city there is only a population of around eighteen thousand people, however this is a popular area for tourism so in the summer months the city can get far busier. Cornwall is one of the most visited counties in the country during the summer months and many of the visitors come to Truro to pay the city a visit. This is a lovely area and there really is plenty to enjoy in the city and in the surrounding area.
If you are looking to stay in Truro then there are a few nice hotels to choose from. Some of the more well known ones include The Lugger Hotel, The Whitehouse Luxury Lodge and The Mannings Hotel. These are all pretty well established hotels and have good reputations for reasonable prices, good quality of rooms and friendly service. There are also some smaller bed and breakfasts and guesthouses in the city. You also have the option of going self catering and staying in privately owned holiday homes, there are plenty of these in the area and many are set in some wonderful countryside. Then there is always the option of camping or caravanning, there are plenty of sites in the area and these provide a good cheap alternative.
Truro must be one of the countries most beautiful little cities. This is such a lovely quaint place with small cobbled streets, lovely architecture and some exceptional buildings to explore. Places of note include the Royal Cornwall Museum which is well worth a look. The Cathedral dominates the skyline and really is a beautiful building that again is really worth exploring. There is also the Courts of Justice and some other major government buildings. The city has a rich history and culture and this really comes across as you look around the city.
There are lots of nice place to eat out in the city. Things ranging from small cafes to large top quality restaurant, there really is plenty of choice here and something to suit every pallet. There are also some nice little pubs that are generally very warm and friendly and have good atmospheres. There are plenty of nice shops and galleries to look around, some good shops aimed at tourists that offer local crafts and other souvenirs. There really is plenty to explore in the town itself and you can easily spend a few hours browsing round the shops.
Truro can be a great place to use as a base for exploring Cornwall. These is one of England's most scenic counties, it has a spectacular coastline with impressive beaches and rugged cliffs. There are plenty of quaint little villages and interesting towns to explore. Plus you have the larger resorts such as Newquay, St. Ives and Penzance. Cornwall really does have plenty to offer and as Truro is pretty central this is a great place to stay. If you have never been to Truro it really is well worth a visit.
