The "capital" of Cornwall, Truro is slightly smaller than Falmouth. It has a number of mainstream shops and some interesting alleys where you can find more individual boutiques.
Truro is home to The Hall for Cornwall, Cornwall's main theatre. There are shows nearly every night of the year ranging from popular music acts to touring dance companies to local operatic shows. Something for everyone.
