St Ives

About St Ives

Once you’ve made your way into St Ives, you can explore the charming jumble of old cobbled streets, such as all the little back lanes off the main shopping area, Fore Street. Parallel to Fore Street, Wharf Road is backed by lively bars and cafes overlooking the harbour and beach. Head west along the shore to Smeaton’s Pier, and look back over the town across the fishing boats. St Ives really does set the standard for the term “picturesque”.
