Barbara Hepworth Sculpture Garden, St Ives

This was top of my list to visit in St Ives and I made a beeline for it when we arrived. The cobbled streets leading up to the gallery also have some lovely designs shops to explore, including Plumbline and Academy & Co for beautiful homewares, craft and design products.

The Hepworth Sculpture garden is located at Trewyn Studios in the centre of St Ives where Barbara Hepworth lived and worked. The gallery and garden have a wonderful collection of sculpture and also her lovingly preserved studio, a really serene space which reflects her work.
