With clean air and shimmering waters, St Ives is a true English beauty. Escape the hustle and bustle of seaside living and stop by this idyllic indoor attraction.
It's in this striking location that you’ll find one of the country’s most mesmerising galleries. Perched on Porthmeor Beach, Tate St Ives is the original seaside art gallery and draws in around 200,000 visitors a year, eager to pencil a bit of culture into their beach break.
There aren’t any permanent exhibitions here. Instead Tate holds three special exhibitions a year, meaning you’ll see something different each time you visit. You can save a few pounds by buying joint admission tickets for Tate St Ives and the Barbara Hepworth Museum, just a short walk away. The latter is well worth seeing for its extraordinary sculpture garden.
