Truro is a historic market town and Cornwall's only city. It is also the administrative centre for the county. The city's Cathedral, completed in 1910, incorporates part of the older 16th-century parish church and blends well with the surrounding Georgian streets, of which Lemon Street is one of the best-preserved examples in England. The old Assembly rooms, located to the North the cathedral, are built of Bath stone and date from 1772. The building is now used as a bakers.
