St Ives Holidays
You may be content to wander those winding streets and park yourself outside a coffee shop, but there are plenty of attractions in St Ives for those family days out. The Tate St Ives perches right beside Porthmeor Beach, so you can take in some of that famous art scene and then step out onto the sand. The Barbara Hepworth Museum & Sculpture Garden is set in the sculptor’s former home, so it’s another must for anyone with a passion for all things art.
If you’re keen to take in some of the famous coastal views, hop aboard the train from Lelant Station and head to St Ives. The journey may be short, but if you sit on the side with the sea view you’ll get a glimpse of some of the South West’s most gorgeous coastline. You can either get a return, or walk one way, but just don’t forget your camera!
It’s no surprise that there are some dazzling beaches in St Ives. Everything about this corner of Cornwall is gorgeous, and you’ll have your pick of sandy spots to enjoy. Crystal clear waters lap sandy beaches along the dramatic coast, and with two Blue Flag beaches in the town St Ives is the perfect choice for a beach holiday.
