Tate St Ives

Overlooking Porthmeor Beach, Tate St Ives presents exhibitions of international Modern and contemporary art, alongside works from the Tate Collection.

Three seasons of exhibitions each year show major figures in contemporary art, ensuring that if you visit more than once a year you will see something different every time. St Ives and the St Ives Modernist artists provide the artistic foundations for Tate St Ives. The gallery, designed by David Shalev and Eldred Evans, was built to celebrate the town’s unique place in the history of British art and Modernism.
Also check out the Barbara Hepworth Museum and Sculpture Garden, which gives a remarkable insight into one of the twentieth century’s most important sculptors.The subtropical garden was an essential part of Hepworth’s creative process and she made many of her most famous works there.

Eden Project

The Eden Project uses exhibits, events, workshops and educational programmes to remind people what nature gives to us and to help people to learn how to look after it in return. All money raised goes to further the aims of the Eden Trust.

We welcome over a million people every year to join in our events and learn from our exhibits. Our work includes programmes and projects with schools, colleges and universities, but we also try to ensure everyone who comes to our site leaves knowing something more about their connections to the world.

Sardines, surfing, fishing and boating, all have played their part in making Newquay the exciting and vibrant coastal destination it is today.

Occupying a fantastic location on the north Cornwall coast, with towering cliffs, pounding surf and a seemingly endless sweep of beaches, its no wonder that generations of visitors have been making their way to this great British holiday base!
