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.
Other spots I loved in St Ives were -
The Allotment Deli - for delicious local produce, Cornwall has no end of great quality home grown food and drink.
St Ives Bakery - 52 Fore St
Moomaid Ice Cream - shop on the harbour, delicious cornish ice cream, watch out for those seagulls though! They really enjoyed my rum and raisin : )
The Malakoff Sculpture
Common Wanderer - Cool outdoor clothing shop
