The bustling Cathedral City of Truro is the centre for administration, commerce and tourism for the County of Cornwall. Truro, called after Tri-veru meaning three rivers which includes the Rivers Kenwyn and Allen, has developed close to the Truro River and with good road and rail links is within easy reach of almost every part of Cornwall.
