Launceston is the ancient capital of Cornwall and boasts a number of historical buildings including the Norman castle and Victorian Guildhall and Town Hall. There is a wide variety of shopping available both in the town centre and the out of town retail park (both independently and nationally owned) together with a range of service businesses, medical facilities and schooling at both primary and secondary levels (private and state sector). The town has a good sports centre, many clubs and societies catering for a wide variety of interests and two 18 hole golf courses within 3 miles.

Access to Plymouth, Exeter, Truro via road are all within an hour's travelling time. The city of Plymouth offers sea and rail links being approximately 29 miles from Launceston. The city of Exeter has rail links and an international airport being approximately 40 miles from Launceston.
