Any trip to Truro must include a tour around the spectacular Truro Cathedral at the heart of the City. The Royal Cornwall Museum , with free admission for children, is another wonder of the City not to miss. It houses an extensive art gallery and there is plenty to keep the children entertained. Take a trip to the theatre at the Hall for Cornwall and see a show or even come for the pantomime each Christmas. Take a ride on the Maritime Line to the beautiful town of Falmouth and enjoy some picturesque scenery on the way.
Traffic-free trails, quiet roads and amazing views combine to make cycling around the Fal River a true treat. There are so many great routes for cycling if you can bring your bike or you can hire bikes locally for the whole family. You can enjoy scenic cycles around the Roseland Peninsula, which can take in two ferry crossings if you're setting off from Falmouth. Then there is the Coast to Coast Trail which links Devoran and Portreath on the North Coast - this is a great day out and ideal for families. For experienced cyclists, the Fal River is the ideal base for a series of spectacular day rides which will take to Penzance, Perranporth, Helford and the Lizard.
