St Ives ©
St Ives is a seaside town, civil parish and port in Cornwall. Escape the urban bustle at St. Michael's Mount and Porthminster Beach. You'll get in some beach time at Carbis Bay Beach and Perranporth Beach. Get out of town with these interesting St Ives side-trips: Porthcurno Beach (in Porthcurno), The Flicka Foundation - Donkey Sanctuary (in Penryn) and Cornish Seal Sanctuary (in Gweek). And it doesn't end there: explore the world behind art at Barbara Hepworth Museum and Sculpture Garden, take in the exciting artwork at The Cowhouse Gallery, enjoy the sand and surf at Godrevy Beach, and take an in-depth tour of Hayle Heritage Centre.

To find maps, where to stay, more things to do, and more tourist information, read our St Ives trip planning tool .

London to St Ives is an approximately 5.5-hour car ride. You can also take a train; or do a combination of flight and bus. Expect little chillier weather when traveling from London in August: highs in St Ives hover around 21°C, while lows dip to 15°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 3rd (Tue) to allow enough time to drive to Padstow.

Padstow

Padstow ©
Padstow is a town, civil parish and fishing port on the north coast of Cornwall, England, United Kingdom. Popular historic sites such as The Lost Gardens of Heligan and Tintagel Castle are in your itinerary. You'll get in some beach time at Fistral Beach Bar and Crantock Beach. Change things up with these side-trips from Padstow: Davidstow Airfield & Cornwall At War Museum (in Camelford), Davidstow Moor RAF Memorial Museum (in Davidstow) and Eden Project (in Bodelva). There's much more to do: identify plant and animal life at Screech Owl Sanctuary, take in the waterfront at Padstow Harbour, take in the architecture and atmosphere at St Just-in-Roseland Church, and push the limits with an extreme tour.

Plan my trip to Padstow with suggested itineraries provided by Inspirock.

You can drive from St Ives to Padstow in 1.5 hours. Alternatively, you can take a bus; or do a combination of train and bus. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 8th (Sun) to allow time to travel back home.
