Description & Services

Information Victoria Square is an area of parkland, where four of the town’s major roadways converge. It is an open grassy space planted with flower beds and trees, and is distinguished by a formal wrought-iron entrance gate and public art. There is a modern building on the site containing the Truro Welcome Centre.  
Victoria Square is valued for the many historic and community events that took place here. Edward Prince of Wales, later King Edward VII, took part in a tree planting ceremony on the Common during his visit to Truro in 1860. It was the site of many official puiblic proclamations, including the one announcing the incorporation of the Town of Truro in 1875. In 1887 when ceremonies were held throughout the British Empire to mark Queen Victoria’s Golden Jubilee, the site was officially named Victoria Square. 
The Truro Welcome Centre is a tourism centre located in historic Victoria Square. Tourism brochures and friendly staff that will assist you in helping make your vacation or day trip the best it can be!
