  • This is a wonderful collection of artefacts reflecting everyday life in St Ives over the centuries. It has been assembled and run by volunteers and deserves to be seen and supported.
  • Absolutely fantastic. Hasn't changed since the 1970s. A beautiful record of a st ives that has been lost. Nothing pretentious, just enjoy the experience!

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.
