St Ives is, we think, best described as Cornwall’s very own gem! With such a variety of activities and gorgeous places to see it really is worth the travel! St Ives has a fascinating history where you can explore so many different avenues, whether it’s artwork from Barbara Hepworth or Tate St Ives, to smaller galleries within the town. Then you have the harbour and stunning beaches, favourites for surfers and families alike, there are beaches for everyone, right on our doorstep! Or if you just fancy a stroll St Ives holds a variety of independent specialist shops, restaurants and pasty shops along many cobbled streets to dawdle down and enjoy the wonders and surprises on offer.
