Join us for a visit to charming St. Ives to explore the famous art movement that began here a century ago, and continues to this day. Particularly celebrated in St. Ives is the work of a young group of painters, potters and sculptors, of which Barbara Hepworth was a member. It was she who set up a seaside art colony here in the 1920's.

Departing the pier in Falmouth, it's a leisurely 80-minute coach drive to delightful St. Ives. Upon arrival, your guide will give you an historical insight and point out places of interest before you set off on your independent exploration of the town. Perhaps take time to visit the Tate gallery which is part of the Tate Gallery in London. This stunning building which stands high above the magnificent surfing beach of Porthmeor, houses a varying exhibition of local and national works and is well worth a visit. Take time to wander the picturesque streets at your leisure where you can shop for local handicrafts, browse the many galleries, or simply enjoy a leisurely rest at a local café or ancient tavern. After approximately 90-minutes of free time, you will meet your guide and re-board your coach

Your return to Falmouth has you traveling over the dramatic landscape of the Cornish moors. Strewn with granite outcrops and mining villages, they have been the inspiration for many a good smugglers story!
