Truro is a city and civil parish in Cornwall and is the centre for administration, leisure and retail in Cornwall. It is the only city in the county of Cornwall and is also the most Southern city in the whole of the UK mainland. It was originally an important centre of trade due to its port, and progressed to a stannary town for the mining industry. The city is renowned for its cathedral, open areas, cobbled streets and beautiful Georgian architecture. The city flourished during the 18th and 19th centuries with the improving mining methods and increased prices for tin, and became home to many wealthy mine owners. As the mining industry began to decline in the 20th century the city remained prosperous within its previous role as a market town – which it still maintains today.

Truro’s most recognisable landmark is the gothic-revival Cathedral by John Loughborough Pearson which stands 76m above the city at its highest spire. Taking 30 years to complete from 1880 to 1910, it was built on the site of the old St. Mary’s Church. Various other structures in the city attract visitors who are enthusiasts for Georgian Architecture, such as the townhouses along Walsingham Place and Lemon Street, which are renowned as the finest examples of Georgian architecture outside of Bath. The city has also recently become better known for its active nightlife, with numerous bars, clubs and restaurants opening.
