- Arriving from the hill down into St Ives, head for the harbour and follow the harbour road as far as The Sloop pub.
- Turn left up Fish Street immediately after The Sloop
- Turn right at end of Fish Street (by The Mermaid) - nb The Island car park is signposted just to the right
- Continue down Back Road East to the T-junction with Seaview Place
- Wheal Dream is immediately to your left - Leo's Cottage has yellow gates and is on the corner of St Eia Street.
- If you get lost, look for signs to the Museum - it's the last building on Wheal Dream.
