St Ives

The town of St Ives in Cornwall is a beloved destination for beach lovers and outdoorsy families. It lies on a narrow headland flanked by a sandy coast on one side and a maze of cobblestone alleys lined with whitewashed cottages on the other. But it is not just the gorgeous sights that make St Ives one of the most visited places in Cornwall.


The town is also famous for its thriving art scene. Visit the Barbara Hepworth Museum and Sculpture Garden, with its unique bronze exhibits, and the Tate Gallery, which features modern masterpieces of British artists.


Wildlife lovers will enjoy a boat trip to Seal Island to see grey seals and other animals in their natural habitat. Don’t miss the chance to watch the sunset from Porthmeor Beach. There are plenty of amazing day trips from St Ives too!
