Truro Town in Cornwall

Photograph of Truro


Truro is the capital and only city in Cornwall, standing on the Truro River - a tributary of the River Fal in mid-west Cornwall. Historically not the largest conurbation in the Duchy, Truro now has a steadily growing population thanks to new building along the Highertown to Threemilestone corridor to the west of the city.
