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 the south east of England, London is divided into thirty two boroughs and is a vibrant, multicultural city. It is the largest city in the United Kingdom and also the largest city in the European Union and is regarded as an international capital of culture, music, education, fashion, politics, finance and trade.
The commercial capital was the City of London. This had a dense population and all the other pre-requisites of a medieval city: walls, a castle (The Tower of London), a cathedral (St Pauls), a semi-independent City government, a port and a bridge across which all trade was routed so Londoners could make money (London Bridge).
A few miles upstream was the government capital (Westminster). This had a church for crowning the monarch (Westminster Abbey) and palaces. As each palace was replaced by a larger one, the previous one was used for government, first the Palace of Westminster (better known as the Houses of Parliament), then Whitehall, then Buckingham Palace. The two were linked by a road called The "Strand", old English for riverbank.
The 'green lungs' of London are the many parks scattered throughout the city including Hyde Park, St James Park and Regent's Park. Most of the larger parks, such as Richmond Park, have their origins in royal estates and hunting grounds and are still owned by the Crown, despite their public access.
