The St Ives Museum is at the centre of the fishing community of Downlong. Its an great-value destination if you enjoy traditional museums; this one explores local history including mining, sardine curing and model boats. Why not ask for a tour from the curator? This really brings history to life.
You can see photos of St Ives before it became a hot summer destination. Or learn about a steamship business that became one of the worlds largest shipping companies. The model boats on display illustrate the local tradition of sailing miniature vessels on nearby Consols Pool every Good Friday - the custom has been maintained for 100 years and even continued through both World Wars. Can the kids to find all the model kittens that are set amongst the exhibits?
You could then head on over to Porthmeor or Porthminster Beach to dig in the sand or play in the water. Porthmeor is great for surfing and watching the waves come in; Porthminster is a favourite for sunbathing.
