  Truro's Location in Cornwall
by Bwana_Brown

Favorite thing: When you have driven this far in England, you don't have to drive very much further to reach the Ocean! Truro (the 'black' dot in the map) is centrally located in Cornwall, being only about 9-10 miles from either the north coast or the south coast and, if you keep on heading west for another 30 miles (50 km), you will find yourself at Land's End, the most westerly tip of England.

The upper pointer on the map indicates the section of north coast where we walked along the rugged 250-foot cliffs west of Portreath on Boxing Day, Dec. 26, 2005. The pointer on the right side shows the location on the gentler south coast, near Mylor and just above Falmouth where we had a very pleasant summer walk in June, 2000. Both experiences are described in my 'Things to Do' tips. The bottom line is, Truro itself has plenty of attractions but it is also ideally located for small day trips to further explore this part of Cornwall.
