BY BUS

Truro and the surrounding area are served by extensive bus services offering routes in and out of the city in all directions.

The bus station is located at Green Street next to Lemon Quay but there are a few other drop off points at River Street, Quay Street, Boscawen Street and Lemon Street.

From the bus station, (approx 7 minutes on foot) turn right (you will see The Old Ale House at the end of the road). Upon reaching the end of this road turn left, cross the zebra crossing and take the right hand fork, going past The Aga Shop. When you reach an offset crossroads turn right (a few lovely antique shops along this road). At the crossroads (with traffic lights), go straight over and up the hill. The Rising Sun is a little way up the hill on your left.

BY RAIL

Truro's railway station is just a few minutes walk from the city centre.

Truro is on the main line between Penzance and London Paddington, with direct connections to Plymouth, Edinburgh and the Midlands. Along this mainline, you can catch one of only two sleeper services in the UK.

Traveling east from Truro, look out for the magnificent 28 metre (92 ft) high stone viaduct offering expansive views over the city, cathedral, and Truro River in the distance. The structure replaced Isambard Kingdom Brunel’s wooden Carvedras Viaduct in 1904.

Connecting to the main line at Truro station is the Maritime Line, a branch line which travels south to Falmouth, with stops at Perranwell, Penryn, Falmouth Town for the National Maritime Museum and Falmouth Docks.

PARKING

We have 5 car parking spaces at the front of the pub, meaning at busy times parking can be tricky. After 6pm and all day Sunday however there is ample street parking in many roads including Mitchell Hill and Agar Road opposite (do not turn into either of the two lanes on each side of the pub as these are access only and very narrow). There is also a shoppers car park at the bottom of Mitchell Hill (coming down the hill, turn right at the traffic lights, in 500yrds, left at the next traffic lights, then immediately left into the car park.
