Explore Cornwall's only city from Truro railway station

Originally opened back in 1859, Truro railway station is located right in the centre of Cornwall's only city and is only a 12-minute walk from its stunning Victorian Gothic Revival cathedral, which was the first completely new one to be built in Britain for around 800 years when construction started on it in the late 1800s.

Uncover the region's history at the Royal Cornwall Museum

Other key attractions in Truro in addition to the cathedral include the Royal Cornwall Museum, which has roots that go all of the way back to 1818 and the founding of the Royal Institution of Cornwall. It boasts a range of fascinating exhibitions including incredible collections of art, ceramics and rare minerals.
