Truro is the only city in Cornwall, granted in the late nineteenth century by Queen Victoria. Work on the cathedral was finished in the early nineteen hundreds and has one of the highest spires in the UK.
Truro has an interesting background stretching back nearly a thousand years. The name Truro was named after a Norman castle which does not now exist. Truro later became a major Tin mining area and port.
The majority of the older buildings are Georgian and Victorian and have been very carefully preserved over the years. Lemon street is one of the most famous in Truro because of it's attractively preserved Georgian houses. The Royal Cornwall museum located in River street has fascinating exhibits, and a geological collection telling the facts of Cornwall's history.
