Living And Working In Truro

March 7, 2022
Joanna Clare

Truro is a city in Cornwall which is on the south coast of England. An interesting fact is that Truro is the only actual city in Cornwall and received its city status back in 1877. The population is currently around 21,000 residents and is the fifth largest community in the region despite not being over populated. It is situated approximately 280 miles from London and the nearest airport is Cornwall Airport in Newquay, a busy commercial airport which is twelve miles away from Truro. Rail networks offer a number of direct services to other towns and cities and of course the city is well connected by road.

Truro has three rivers running through the city which many experts believe may have originally contributed to the name of Truro. Surrounded by the Atlantic Ocean, it can become rainy and has been officially recognised as one of the rainiest and wettest cities in the UK. However, when it is warm it is the perfect destination which is why visitors flock to this city and it is an ever increasing holiday haven. The beautiful sandy beach of Portholland is the nearest beach to Truro which is approximately ten miles away from the city depending on the route you choose. Being both dog and family friendly and also rarely crowded it is classed as a National Heritage Site so has therefore remained relatively unspoilt.

Last year, the government announced a multi million pounds investment for Truro to assist with boosting the economy, creating new jobs and building new homes which was welcome news especially after the pandemic. Once heavily reliant on tin mining and also trading goods, Truro can now boast a fantastic selection of modern retailers, regular markets, cafes and restaurants which of course include traditional Cornish pasty shops and tea rooms serving a quaint Cornish afternoon tea.

Truro is a cathedral city. Its cathedral which opened in 1910 has some of the most beautiful stained glass windows ever produced in the country and is one of only three cathedrals in the UK to have just three spires.

Cornwall as a whole became very popular during the pandemic when people were beginning to realise their aspirations of moving to a coastal area and this undoubtedly pushed prices upwards yet the average price of a property in Truro is approximately £320,000 and there are some stunning homes available.

With coastal paths and miles upon miles of scenic countryside with Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty on your doorstep, you really could make your dream come true here.
