The Sloop Studios - A Hidden Gem In St Ives

Just a short walk from the harbour, behind The Sloop Inn, tucked right in the corner of the car park is the amazing Sloop Studios.

It amazes me at how overlooked this little gem of a place is.

Their sign states that the craftspeople here sell only the goods they have made or have worked on themselves, either at the Sloop Studios or in their own workshops.

Getting There

Walk to The Sloop Inn and turn up Fish Street. Turn first left into the The Sloop Car Park (usually jammed). If you look in the far back corner, by the St Ives Sailing Club boats and kayaks, you will see the entrance to The Sloop Studios.

On the walls are 2 frames with lots of photos and information about the history of the building.
