About St Ives
St Ives is a small fishing town on the dramatic North Cornwall coast, famous for its picturesque harbour, stunning golden sandy beaches and numerous little hidden coves. Porthmeor beach, with its rolling breakers and stunning sunsets, is a favourite with surfers whilst Porthgwidden and Porthminster are favoured by families for their calm, translucent bathing waters.
St Ives bay benefits from a sub-tropical climate and always receives more sunshine than is forecasted. It is the perfect base to explore West Penwith's area of outstanding natural beauty with its granite cliffs, fishing communities and ancient moorlands. September is the perfect time to enjoy a late summer break with our special offers and the St Ives September Festival to inspire you!
Art has played an important role in shaping St Ives, famed for its special light and inspiring sea and landscapes. Tate St Ives is dramatically situated above Porthmeor beach and the current show International Exchanges: Modern Art and St Ives 1915–1965 running from 17th May to 28th September 2014 is a must see. St Ives has been home for such artistic luminaries as Barbara Hepworth, Bernard Leach, Ben Nicholson and Patrick Heron whose works are featured in galleries, museums and public spaces in the town. Numerous eclectic galleries and studios are dotted around the harbour. The St Ives September Festival of Music, Arts and Literature runs from 13th to 27th September 2014 and has a fabulous line up and great atmosphere.
