With a population of around 20,000 the city of Truro is intimate and friendly whilst offering the facilities and cache that one would expect as Cornwall's capital. As well as its cathedral, with its distinctive spire, Truro is well-known for its excellent Georgian architecture (widely regarded as the best example west of Bath), its cobbled streets, vibrant shopping centre and well-stocked farmers' markets. Its parks and open spaces include Victoria Gardens, Boscawen Park and Daubuz Moors.

Just nine miles from the south coast of Cornwall with its sandy beaches and breathtaking scenery, Truro lies on the confluence of the rivers Kenwyn and Allen. They combine to form the Truro river that leads into the River Fal and then on to the large natural harbour of Carrick Roads.

Surrounding the city is beautiful countryside and parkland including the historic Pencalenick and the ornamental Trelissick Gardens and Tregothnan which is further down the Truro River. Alongside the River Allen, close to the city centre, is a Local Nature Reserve and south east of the city around Calenick Creek has been designated an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

As well as being home to the Royal Cornwall Hospital and offering a mainline rail link to London Paddington, Truro is blessed with arguably the best primary and secondary schools in the county. Primary schools which include, Bosvigo, Archbishop Benson and St Marys with Penair and Richard Lander fantastic secondary schools. Truro also has probably the most popular and highest achieving private schools in the county with Truro Prep and Polwhele School preparatory schools and Truro School and Truro Girls High leading the private secondary education. Independent and specialist shops are dotted between the best names on the high street and twice a week Lemon Quay hosts a colourful farmers' market full of local produce. The indoor Pannier Market is open all year-round with many stalls and small businesses. The city is also popular for its excellent restaurants, cafes and bistros.
