The West Country region
St Ives, the most famous of Cornish holiday towns, loved for generations, is easy to reach by road or by air and by train, too, along one of the most spectacular railway journeys in Britain to crystal blue waters, golden sands and a very warm welcome.
Life is centred around the harbour and ancient granite quays where boats still bring ashore good catches of the freshest fish for you to enjoy at the the local restaurants. .
St. Ives has a truly Mediterranean feel about it, so explore the maze of tiny narrow streets and alleyways and relax on the crescent shaped beaches with their safe golden sands and iridescent turquoise sea - all set within the uniquely rugged granite landscape of West Penwith, with its hewn cliff faces, prehistoric remains and the haunting ruins of the once great tin and copper mining industries which flourished throughout the area.
This stunning little town has become a Mecca for the Arts. Turner, Whistler and Sickert were amongst the earliest artists to arrive in St. Ives, with Nicholson, Barbara Hepworth and Naurn Gabo settled in St Ives in 1939.
This strong and vital artistic tradition, particularly in the field of the abstract avant-garde, led to the siting of the new Tate Gallery here in 1993. It is a stunning building with a varying exhibition of local and national works and well worth a visit. The Gallery's inspirational building stands high above the magnificent surfing beach of Porthmeor and features exhibitions which represent the modern 'St. Ives School' of painters such as Peter Lanyon, Patrick Heron and Sir Terry Frost as well as a changing programme of other contemporary work. Allied to Tate St Ives is the Barbara Hepworth Museum, a lasting memorial to the great sculptress who lived and worked in St. Ives at her Trewyn Studio. Her workshop has been carefully preserved and made accessible; the gardens and house contain many examples of her finest work and is situated just a minute's walk from Windsor Court.
Full of history at every turn, the great Victorian novelist and poet Thomas Hardy in 1870 wrote "the place is pre-eminently the region of dream and mystery", describing his first experience of Cornwall. Even today this mystical land continues to exert a strange influence over those who come to visit its secret and sacred places, to marvel at the breathtakingly beautiful coastline or simply to surf or bask on its sun-drenched beaches.
St. Ives offers the visitor everything that they could wish for in a seaside resort and is a place that truly has something for everyone!
