|ST IVES ARTS & CRAFTS
St Ives is a creative haven - a place where artists feel they belong - a place for them to live and work.
It is quite a testament to this tiny town that The Tate decided to locate its second gallery here.
No other small town in the world can claim such an accolade!
But The Tate is not the only great art gallery in St Ives - there are dozens of others worth visiting.
|St Ives Cornwall
Of all the jewels in Cornwall's crown - St Ives is the most dazzling.
St Ives has the perfect setting, and St Ives is the most picturesque town in Cornwall.
Local tip - come here out of season to enjoy the place at its best - with no crowds.
|ST IVES RESTAURANTS
St Ives may not boast a big-name TV chef - but it does have some terrific restaurants.
The Mermaid in the old fishing quarter is highly recommended.
The Porthminster Cafe - right on the beach, has the perfect setting - and superb food!
The Bean Inn at Carbis Bay is a wonderful vegetarian restaurant and a breath of fresh air!
Hobblers House on the harbour front is the ultimate cosy seaside restaurant - I love it!
And here's a tip from a local - ChrisTaylor, owner of the excellent of Woodside Hotel, says
"For my money the best place to eat is The Wave on St Andrews Street."
