Truro : Michelin's recommendations


Historically a river port and mining centre, Truro was considered the county "metropolis" in the 18C and 19C, on account of its theatre and assembly rooms, library (1792) and cathedral (1850). It is the most notable Georgian town west of Bath, with 18C houses, notably in Boscawen Street and Lemon Street.
