About St. Ives
Tate Gallery, St. Ives, Cornwall
View of St. Ives town and harbour, from Porthminster Beach, Cornwall View of The Island, St. Ives, Cornwall from Porthmeor Beach

St. Ives in Cornwall is perhaps the most beautiful coastal town in the South West, full of history, art, and four of the most beautiful beaches in Cornwall. The town has a superb selection of restaurants, cafes, and pubs and has developed a very cosmopolitan feel together with an art and cultural scene which acts as a magnet for visitors from all over the world.

St Ives has been named the Guardian seaside town of the year, 2007. Alongside 11 other short listed coastal towns and cities from around Britain and Ireland, St Ives faced an intense grilling by a star-studded panel of judges which included Bill Bryson and Rick Stein as well as John Betjemanís daughter, Candida Lycett Green. But the combination of St Ivesí golden, Atlantic washed beaches, artistic draw and strong cultural identity made it a clear choice for the coveted title. Click here for article.
