St Ives is a destination that has all year round appeal due to its warmer climate, rugged coastline, sandy beaches and superb collection of art galleries and popular eateries. Situated between Porthmeor and Porthwidden beaches with the Harbour beaches and Wharf close by, enjoy a day at the seaside followed by an evening meal overlooking the harbour and its far reaching coastal views. Although St Ives is well known for its beautiful town and lighthouse, it has been a place to see the works of great artists and sculptors such as Barbara Hepworth, Henry Irving, Bernard Leach, Henry Moore, Turner and Whistler.
St Ives has many year round attractions and places to visit with its own festival taking place in September. This is an especially vibrant area for Christmas and New Year festive celebrations.
