  • I had a wonderful time here. It's very calming (though there are activity stations laid out for younger visitors I went on a school day) and it's worth watching the video of Leach himself explaining what they do at the pottery. There's also a wide selection of really gorgeous handmade items available to buy so be prepared!
  • For pottery enthusiasts how can you miss this? Excellent museum type things like old kilns and a fab display of Leach pots.... just buy some...
  • Iconic pottery with good historic and current ceramics.
  • Kids liked it.....
  • My favourite place to visit in St Ives. Bernard Leach is a cultural treasure.

Where to stay in St Ives

A guest room along one of the cobbled Victorian streets, such as Fore Street, provides access to pubs, restaurants and the harbor. For spectacular views over the sea, consider a hotel near the water. Book harborside lodging early because seaside rooms fill up fast, especially during the holiday season. Inland from the southern coastline, renovated shepherd's huts and cottages provide shelter among the hills.
