St Ives, Cornwall
I love St Ives, It's unique, with it's crystal blue waters, golden sands and a mild sub-tropical climate, It's a real gem.Wonderful to walk around and explore, I can understand why it is such a favourite with everyone. Come rain or shine my Wife and I visit it through out the year, believe it or not but most of the pictures here where taken in the winter months of March and November.

Lots to see and do, shops are good (And that's from someone who hates shopping).Life here is revolves around the harbour where boats still land good catches of fish on the ancient granite quays for the local restaurants, St Ives has some of some of the finest fish restaurants in the UK. A maze of tiny cobbled streets to wander through, lined by fishermen's cottages, with a breathtaking seaside views to greet you at the end of each one, we love it.

The Tate Gallery at St. Ives is part of the Tate Gallery in London, a stunning building with a number of exhibitions of local and national works. The Gallery is above the surfing beach of Porthmeor ( my favourite ) 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 work and some of her finest pieces (see my pictures) again is worth a look. If you are ever going to Cornwall you must go to St Ives.
The following 14 pictures are taken in the Barbara Hepworth Museum
