The Barbara Hepworth Museum & Sculpture Garden in St Ives Cornwall is a wonderful place to visit for all ages. It is a workshop, house and garden preserved in time, showing how Barbara Hepworth lived and created.
Whether you are a dab hand at surfing or you have never tried it before, St Ives is a good place to surf.
Porthmeor Beach is our best surf beach with good waves most of the year round. It does occasionally go as flat as a pancake in the Summertime, but this is fairly unusual. There is usually decent surf, sometimes fantastic surf!
St Ives Museum is really worth a visit. It is jam packed full to the rafters of interesting and unusual bits of history from St Ives. From the fishing industry to the mines, the train line and tourists. It provides so much detail about the town and it's history.
The Tate St Ives sits overlooking Porthmeor Beach in the old gas works building. It has lots of modern art, holds exhibitions, talks and events. In the school holidays there are art sessions for the children which are brilliant. They also have a lovely cafe and shop.
