Truro is a city and civil parish in Cornwall in the south west of the United Kingdom. The city is the administrative centre of Cornwall and also its leisure and retail centre. The city is roughly 10 miles from the confluence of the rivers Kenwyn and Allen which both combine to become the Truro River which flows into the River Fal. The rivers form a bowl surrounding the city to the north, east and west. Close to the city are a number of protected natural areas including the parklands at Pencalenick and the larger ornamental landscape such as Trelissick Garden and Tregothnan. Calenick Creek, to the south east of the city, has been declared an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
The Cathedral of the Blessed Virgin Mary, Truro is an Anglican cathedral located in the centre of the city. It was built in the Gothic Revival architectural style fashionable during much of the nineteenth century, and is one of only three cathedrals in the United Kingdom with three spires.
The main attraction for local residents in the region is the wide variety of shops the city has to offer which includes a selection of chain stores, specialty shops and markets. The indoor Pannier Market is open year-round with many stalls and small businesses. The city is also a popular destination for nightlife with many bars, clubs and restaurants opening. Truro is also known for the Hall for Cornwall, a performing arts and entertainment venue.
Located in north west England, close to the border with Scotland, Carlisle is an historic city centred on its castle, museum and cathedral. In 1823 a canal was built to Fisher's Cross (Port Carlisle) to transport goods produced in the city. This enabled other industrial centres such as Liverpool to link with Carlisle via the Solway. However, this did not last and when the canal operators ran into financial difficulty the waterway was filled in and replaced by railways. Carlisle became a major railway centre on the West Coast Main Line with connections to the east. At one time seven companies used Carlisle Citadel railway station. Before the building of the Citadel Station the city had several other railway stations, including London Road station.
For those who appreciate good food, every August the Carlisle Food Fair is held in the pedestrianised area of the city centre. It plays host to produce from across the continent and features local produce including Cumberland sausage, Cumberland sauce and Cumberland Mustard. Carlisle is roughly 25 miles to the north of the northern edge of the Lake District, which is home to some of Britain's best restaurants.
