The City of Truro is very small by modern city standards, but as the old saying goes "They don't make Diamonds as big as Bricks" because what it lacks in size it certainly makes up for in beauty and Character. The first thing you notice is the Cathedral with its Three Spires which dominates the skyline and can be seen from every part of the city.Add to this a mix of modern and traditional shops, Bars and Resturants which cater for every taste. There is also a museum and The Hall for Cornwall offers nightly entertainment from Comedy to Pop, Classical, Plays and Ballet from touring companies across the UK and the rest of the world. During the day stroll along some of the smaller streets and along the small river which runs through the city into the Truro river which in turn enters the River Fal that runs out into the English Channel. Or maybe walk past the museum a short distance and you will find the Emporium of SW Optics run by Steve and his assistant Kate where if they are not busy you can stick your head inside for a pleasant hello and admire all the bins and scopes and cameras on offer. If you walk on about 100m on the right you will find Victoria Gardens which is well worth a visit. So I hope I have given you a small insight into what this beautiful City has to offer, The following set of photo's were taken in early September, and show the main shopping area's during a shopping trip with my wife. In the future I hope to show more of the unique features this City has to offer.
