Truro is the administrative centre of Cornwall, well known for its cathedral, Georgian architecture and cobbled streets. It is also a shopper's paradise, congruent with its historic tradition of being a market town and fun loving tourist destination. The most recognisable attraction is the cathedral, which was built in the late 19th century. It features the largest stained glass project in the world, which tells the story of the Gospel, as well as that of the church in England.
The Royal Cornwall Museum in Truro is the window to Cornwall's history and cultural heritage, with its art exhibitions by Cornwall artists, its mineral collection and its archaeological exhibits. Theatre lovers will enjoy the Hall for Cornwall, a performing arts venue offering live theatre productions, such as plays, dramas and musicals, along with world-class musical performances. Shopping enthusiasts will be pleased with Truro's varied selection of specialty shops, chain stores and markets, including Pannier Market and Lemon Street Market.
