Why Move to Truro
Truro is a Cathedral City. It is the only city in the stunning county of Cornwall, it is also Cornwall’s county town. The much-loved Cathedral presides over the city and is very much its focal point. Built at the turn of the century the cathedral dominates Truro’s skyline with its 250-foot-high towers and beautiful Victorian stained-glass windows. It is said to be one of the finest pieces of medieval architecture in the county.
800 years ago, Truro was a port as well as a market town and experienced a boom during the tin mining era. This industry owed its success to the location of the town, being at the head of a navigable stretch of the river Fal. The locally mined tin was easily distributed via the riverways at that time. The city manages to retain its standing as a market town and is the main retail destination in Cornwall, with much of the city centre converted to pedestrian areas, ideal for shopping.
Compact and easily navigable on foot, the historical city centre is packed with fantastic shops, fabulous restaurants, and quality entertainment. Getting out and about in the surrounding areas of the city poses plenty of choice. Cornwall is hard to beat when it comes to rural charm and has an abundance of outdoor activities to enjoy. On the flip side, pristine coastal locations are dotted all along Cornwall’s coast and the rivers Truro and Fal provide a countless supply of exciting water-based sports to experience.
Truro is well served by road, rail, air, and sea links, making light of travel throughout the region. The main London to Penzance railway line passes through Truro, and regular daily air services to and from London and elsewhere in the UK operate from Newquay Airport (15 miles away). The fast A30 dual carriageway passes within 7 miles of Truro offering access up and down the region. On top of all these wonderful attributes, Truro also provides those who are lucky enough to reside here a home amid a friendly community and a laid-back relaxed lifestyle.
Schools & Education
Truro is a good place to live for families thanks to its excellent schools, and there is plenty of them to choose from.

St Mary’s CofE primary managed to bag the highest rating of “outstanding”.
In 2015 Richard Lander High School (11-16yrs) had a full inspection by Ofsted. It was awarded the status of “good”. In 2018 it was re-inspected and was judged as still being “good” with Ofsted stating that “The leadership team has maintained the good quality of education in the school since the last inspection”.
