Just a moment’s stroll from the front of our restaurant, hotel and apartments, you’ll find one of our favourite little corners of Truro. Nestled between the fine Georgian buildings on Lemon Street (built using Bath stone) you’ll find Lemon Street Market – an indoor shopping destination featuring an eclectic and delightful collection of independent stores.

Lemon Street Market houses some great independent stores

Whether you’re searching for great gifts, unique clothes, eye-catching homewares or local handcrafted drinks, Lemon Street Market is a little oasis in the heart of the city.

Once you’re done perusing the shops, grab a bouquet of fresh flowers from The Flower Press and a quick coffee at Fig Café, before heading back to the elegant surroundings of Mannings, your city-centre bolthole!
