Properties for Sale and Rent in Truro
Although a fairly small city by the UK’s standards, Truro is a great place to live. Sitting at the head of the waterway bearing its name, Truro, with a population of just 22,000, may be one of the UK’s smaller ‘cities’ but it has a big heart and a welcoming sense of Cornish style. With its great shops, fabulous restaurants, good entertainment, quality housing and relaxed lifestyle, it’s placed right at the top of many a wish-list of favorite places to live and visit.
Wander through any of the city’s streets and the dominating feature is the magnificent neo-Gothic cathedral, visited by more than a million people every year. The spires of this architectural masterpiece can be seen from the surrounding streets and passageways, where it sits comfortably among the shops and businesses.
Truro offers a large choice of property, from inner-city apartments to elegant town houses, riverside properties, edge-of-town developments, or properties with land. The city’s hub is the wide, open space of Lemon Quay, once the unloading site for river boats coming up from the sea. This granite-paved plaza is now home to restaurants, elegant shops and the Hall for Cornwall theatre; it’s also the regular venue for local farmers’ markets and a succession of music concerts, art and craft fairs and Cornish produce fairs.
Getting about in this friendliest of cities is easy. Everywhere can be reached on foot and all the main shopping areas are linked through a series of walkways or ‘opes’. It’s an enchanting place to visit and a wonderful community in which to eat, shop, work, be entertained or educated. In fact, it’s a great place to live.
