Many people travel into Truro to visit shops with more variety. The city centre is very small with the usual mix of national retailers and small independent shops. However, even the most immediate surrounding area are made up of small villages with narrow winding country lanes separating them from the city centre. Buses from Truro go to numerous Cornish towns & villages although passengers should note that some journey times can be quite long.
The city is surrounded by a number of protected natural areas such as the historic parklands at Pencalenick, and larger areas of ornamental landscape, such as Trelissick Garden and Tregothnan further down the Truro River. An area south-east of the city, around and including Calenick Creek, has been designated an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Other protected areas include an Area of Great Landscape Value comprising agricultural land and wooded valleys to the north east, and Daubuz Moors, a Local Nature Reserve located alongside the River Allen close to the city centre.
