A message from Lynn, the store manager: if you're travelling to Lakeland in Truro for a specific product, please telephone us beforehand on 01872 242334 to check availability.
Our store is in Boscawen Street, a 5 minute walk from the bus station and 10 minutes from the train station. Please feel free to leave your Lakeland shopping with us whilst you visit Truro - it's a lovely city that's well worth visiting.
Truro began as a Celtic village with the Normans building a castle here which stimulated the growth of the town, the castle garrison provided a market for goods made in the settlements. Through the centuries Truro was a small port and market town but by the late 18th and 19th centuries it began to grow rapidly. In 1877 Truro became the only city in Cornwall after it was given its own bishop and separated from the diocese of Exeter.
A short stroll away from our store is the beautiful Truro Cathedral, built in the 1880s. This cathedral was the first to be built on a new site in England since Salisbury Cathedral in 1220, and it has some of the finest examples of Victorian stain glass windows in the country. You can even join one of the guided tours that are available every morning from April to October.
Make sure you pay a visit to the lovely 'Charlotte's Tea Rooms' opposite in Coinage Hall, where you'll find all the waitresses dressed in Victorian dress and serving you proper tea and home made cakes. Charlotte's has held an 'award for excellence' from the Tea Guild for the past few years.
Wednesdays and Saturdays are farmers market days - you'll find stalls on the Lemon Quay Piazza, a great place to buy lots of fresh produce.
All enquiries, mail orders and catalogue requests are handled by our friendly and knowledgeable colleagues at our Windermere headquarters. They're available to help you on 015394 88100.
