St Ives is well known for it's art and the The Tate St Ives offers exhibitions that are constantly changing as well as its outstanding permanent collection of art. The St Ives Museum and The Leach Pottery are also well worth a visit.
The town itself is set around the harbour and is the centre of the historic fishing community with the legacy of fishing boats bobbing in the harbour itself whilst families play on the beaches of golden sand, and explore winding cobbled streets, finding treasures such as the wide range of small independent shops, galleries, restaurants, pubs & bars. With the benefit of the warmth of the Gulf Stream, the area also enjoys a mild sub-tropical climate.
St Ives has a busy events calendar all year round and the town is a hive of activity from the Feast Day in February (with the traditional hurling of the silver ball), to local theatre productions, the St.Ives September Festival and the year ends with Christmas celebrations and the ever popular New Years Eve event where fancy dress is nearly obligatory!
