Truro is Cornwall’s cathedral city but still has the atmosphere of a small town. In the 18th C Truro was the centre of Georgian Cornwall and during this time Boscawen Street and Lemon Street were built. Boscawen Street is a broad cobbled street where the granite faced City Hall Stands. Lemon Street survives as one of the finest examples of a late Georgian street in Britain. Truro’s Victorian cathedral with its soaring Gothic spires gives a powerful focus to the town situated amongst the pedestrianised shopping area.
