Recommended in St. Ives

There is great music at the Kettle & Wink pub on Wednesdays & Fridays, when you'll hear some of the country's best folk music - all created by local musicians

Easy access to the South West Coast Walk, either directly from St Ives or driving to other sections. Beautiful coves and good beach cafes within the town.

The sea food cafe. Fresh fish of many varieties that you chose from a wet fish display.

Several lovely beaches to choose from, each with its own characteristic.

Are you watching Poldark? THAT scenery I am talking about!

The Rum and Crab Shack. Super food in a lovely setting.
