Saint Ives Things to Do
Barbara Hepworth Museum and Sculpture...
Barbara Hepworth (1903 - 1975) was a British artist who lived and worked at this studio the last 26 years of her life. It is now a museum displaying facts and artefacts of her life, the studio still in its state where she worked, and many of her sculptures. Many of these are large and placed outside by the artist herself in the garden.
To be honest, we only decided to visit because my daughter found it in the travel book, and she had been studying Hepworth at school. We all enjoyed it, though; we actually liked the artwork and it is really a peaceful and beautiful garden.
Looking at the web-site now, I see that it is part of the Tate St Ives. Admission is £5.50 and £3.25.Related to:

St Ives Free Church
The Congregations of the United Reformed Church built this structure in 1865; it was refurbished in 1979. In addition to regular worship services, the church hosts meetings and community gatherings. It also has Just Sharing, a shop specializing in goods from around the world, made according to the principles of Fair Trade (respecting workers' rights and dignity). Finally, it has a Tookey's Coffee Shop. So it's a bit more than just another church.Related to:

It was in the hotel. Tuesday Quiz night and raffle. I won the raffle. Quiz is another story. They say there was a team with less points than ours but we didn't really see them. So Thank You.
Dress Code: Went there right from work I was a bit over dressed. Still had a tie on. Casual is perfect for this or any of the other places we saw in town.
