Local Attractions

There are lots of things to do and see in West Cornwall and St Ives makes a great base from which to explore. The South West Coast Path offers some wonderfully scenic walks and meanders along some of the most beautiful coastline in the United Kingdom. Walkers can also head inland and explore ancient Cornwall with its Bronze Age stone circles, Iron Age villages and Neolithic dolmens such as Zennor Quoit.

There are a multitude of galleries to visit, including the TATE Gallery and the Barbara Hepworth Museum & Sculpture Garden in St Ives.

Lands End is a tourist attraction which is based on the picturesque natural landscape.

Marazion is reputed to be the oldest town in Cornwall with historical connections to the ancient tin trade and wonderful views of St Michaels Mount (NT).

The Minack Open Air Theatre is a unique 750 seat theatre carved into the cliffside with stunning views over Porthcurno, one of the great beaches of Cornwall (or anywhere in the world). The exhibition centre tells the story of Rowena Cade who built the theatre. The villages of Lamorna, Lelant and Mousehole, to name but a few, also make a delightful day out. There are also several gardens which offer visitors lovely walks such as Trengwainton Gardens (NT) in nearby Penzance.

For children there are many attractions for a fun day out. Flambards Experience in Falmouth offers an exciting day out with the best thrill rides in Cornwall plus live entertainment and attractions such as wildlife, Space Quest, Victorian Village and Britain in the Blitz. Paradise Park in Hayle has wildlife attractions and a good play centre with adventure slides for adults and children to enjoy.

St Ives is blessed with some very fine restaurants offering local produce and in particular, locally caught fish and seafood, as well as sublime views of the harbour.
