interesting to view with its circular entrance way rather like an amphitheatre. The location on Porthmeor Beach provides a picturesque sight. Inside, the shop and top floor café can be enjoyed without paying for admission to the galleries.

If you going to St'Ives Don't Forget To Visit the Tate. It's a very important modern art museum, with incredibile pieces inside of local artists.
It's little bit expensive, but I think It really deserves to be seen.
There is a gallery with entertainments for children, funny games also for adults.
There is a coffe inside where you can have good food for an honest price. The staff is helpful and pleasant.
Near the Tate you will find one of my favorite spots, which is the Porthmeor Beach and St Nicholas Chapel.
Easily reachable with a short walk from the train station.

A day out from the studio, you can use the train and arrive on the beach in St Ives, special, lots of places to eat and shop right by the sea

Only half finished ( Spring 2017). Should be worth a visit when it is finished. In the meantime, you can enter free to climb to the cafe at the top for a wonderful view of St.Ives & the surfing beach.

The Tate St Ives is well worth a visit, there is an ever changing show and with the new extension opening in May 2016 there will be more space for more shows. An iconic building and probably one of the only art galleries sat overlooking a beautiful beach. The cafe on the roof is a great place for a coffee or a meal.
