Local Services in Cornwall
Shopping in Truro is a delight. The city centre is served by a combination of national chain stores, independent stores, trendy boutiques and specialist outlets. Pydar, Boscawen and King Streets form the shopping centre that leads through a series of quaint opes full of smaller shops, down to River Street and Victoria Square with their independent clothes and jewellery shops.
From there it’s just a short walk to Lemon Street, with its comfortable courtyard of market-style galleries, shops and cafs, and to Lemon Quay with its huge Marks & Spencer store, parade of shops and open piazza for that cup of coffee as the world strolls by. And overlooking the Lemon Quay pedestrian area is the main entrance to Truro’s Pannier Market. Inside, there’s an amazing collection of stalls selling everything you’re likely to need. Many would argue that Truro is not only the South-west’s best shopping centre, but that it also provides the region’s most pleasurable shopping experience.
The Royal Cornwall Hospital, formerly and still commonly known as Treliske Hospital, is a medium-sized teaching hospital in Treliske, on the outskirts of Truro. The hospital is used for clinical training of medical students from the Peninsula Medical School, which is maintained by the University of Plymouth and the University of Exeter. The Royal Cornwall Hospital is one of three main hospitals operated by the Royal Cornwall Hospitals NHS Trust, the others being St Michael's Hospital, Hayle and West Cornwall Hospital, Penzance.
