Overview

From performing arts, live shows, museums and art galleries to festivals, St Ives is the art mecca of the Southwest. After WW II, this tiny fishing village was transformed into a vibrant, influential art colony, the epicentre of the British Modernist movement. The Barbara Hepworth Museum, the Bernard Leach Pottery & Museum and Tate St Ives are the legacy this small town has made on the art world. Discover many other galleries dotted about the town or sign up to a course at the St Ives School of Painting, a Barnoon workshop or join Kidz R Us, one of the best youth theatres in the country.
