St Ives (Cornwall, England) Reviews
Newest Review: ... town, in West Cornwall is relatively small in comparrison to other towns in the area. The cobbled, pedestrian streets allow holiday makers and surfers alike to walk around the town with ease. A fish shop on every corner, where you can eat the day's delights from a restaurant or on the move. During the summer season, the town is filled with surfers heading to PorthMinster beach and families and holiday makers heading to the PorthMear beach on the other side of the town. The Tate Gallery is lovely to have lunch in, as it over looks the town, giving lovely views of the ocean. As you walk down the harbour, the buzz of day to day life cat... more

I first went to St. Ives when I was four years old with my pregnant Mum and my Dad back in 1990. I remember this holiday very clearly as being the first time I was allowed into the sea... I loved it... A year later, we returned and stayed in my neighbours cottage for a week. From then on, my Mum, Dad, Brother and I would go to St. Ives for a weeks holiday every year up until I left to University three years ago.

We have just returned from a long weekend in Cornwall. One of the places which we decided to visit for a couple of hours was St Ives. I had not been to St Ives since I was a child and my partner had never visited so it was like visiting a new place for us. St Ives is situated in Cornwall, between Hayle and Penzance. It is easy to get to and can be reached by car, train and bus easily. We drove to St Ives and it was easy to find a car park, we parked in a short stay section where it cost £1.20 for 1 hour or £1.70 for 2 hours. There were a couple of other car parks dotted about but we just went in the first one we got to. We then had to walk down ... Read the complete review

St Ive's is a lovely part of Cornwall, situated fairly near the tip although not the very end! It is in a lovely position to visit both the north and south costs and also the tip, I guess Lands End would be about 3/4 hr to an 1hrs drive away and Penzance on the south coast is about 40 to 45 minutes away. St Ive's itself is a quaint place, hard to reach into the centre by car but it is possible for those who need disabled parking to park on the harbour wall if you can get there - be warned if you have a particularly wide vehicle like a camper van you probably won't get down there! you have to drive through a very narrow gap. The town itself is ... Read the complete review

For me, St Ives or Porth la as it is known in Cornish, Is without a doubt one of the most beautiful places in Britain. It is situated almost at the tip of cornwall. Its neighbouring town in Penzance. Although all this area of Cornwall is beautiful. I feel that the beauty of St Ives shines higher than anywhere else. As you walk through the cobbled back streets, boasting pretty fisherman cottages. The allure of this seaside town will embrace you. The aroma of freshly cooked fare from all the surrounding restaraunts and bakerys will have you trailing down the cobbles like the bisto kid. The sounds in St Ives offer pure serenity. The sounds of the ... Read the complete review

St Ives Bay is a beautiful place to visit and spend your holidays. There are so many beaches to choose from. There are lively surfers beaches and quite secluded coves. The main town beach is a great suntrap and you can spend the whole day wandering around all of the shops then sitting in the harbour eating a cornish pasty, watch out for the seagulls though as they are forever swooping down stealing food from people and because they are so big and powerful could hurt a small child. It is a very busy town at the height of the summer season but this still does not spoil the atmosphere. There is a lot of art in the including The Tate St Ives art ... Read the complete review

Great day out; fantastic views; amazing caves.
Not so good for the very young eg babies/children in pushchairs. Its best to go on a warm sunny day.
