Local directions

Cohort is a 5 minute walk from the train/bus station. Follow the main road into St Ives town centre (if you’re coming from the train station walk through the car park to find it) and keep following it as it turns sharply to the right and goes downhill. When you reach the Nat West bank on the corner of Gabriel Street turn left. Walk past the library and the Co-Op supermarket (on your right) to find Cohort after that on your right hand side.
