St Ives is a seaside town, civil parish and port in Cornwall. Barbara Hepworth Museum and Sculpture Garden has been added to your itinerary. Venture out of the city with trips to Healeys Cornish Cyder Farm (in Truro), Cornish Seal Sanctuary (in Gweek) and Trebah Garden (in Falmouth). There's still lots to do: step off the mainland to explore St. Michael's Mount, stop by Cornish Tin & Gold, kick back and relax at Porthminster Beach, and look for all kinds of wild species at Wildlife Areas.
