| The Location
| ST IVES – A CORNISH PARADISE A picturesque
town ringed by glorious beaches and a beautiful harbour. An
amazing variety of shops amongst narrow cobbled streets will
appeal to some, while others will enjoy its close proximity
to coast paths and the wild Cornish country-side. Porthmeor,
its largest beach, is a prime surfing venue and has won awards
|Overlooking the beach is the Tate Gallery,
one of scores of galleries around town, a testament to its renowned
artistic community. Making Waves is a minutes walk from the
Barbara Hepworth sculpture gardens, and only five minutes from
the Tate and Porthmeor beach.

Pagan monuments, St.Michaels Mount, Lands End, Seal Sanctuary,
or further afield, the Lost Gardens of Heligan. Activities you
can busy yourself with are surfing, diving, kite flying (hire

pubs or night-clubs if you are so inclined. We also have a vibrant
live music scene.
