Barbara Hepworth Museum is an absolute must when visiting St. Ives. The incredible sculptures in bronze, marble, stone and other materials are eye wateringly beautiful. What a clever and interesting lady she must have been.

A lovely little museum that shows her work off well and her workshop and part works are also on view and they are fascinating. Worth a visit but cheaper if you get a combined Tate St Ives/Barbara Hepworth Museum ticket. It isn't a large museum...More

We arrived for opening time on a beautiful bright winter morning-a fascinating pictorial history fills the downstairs of the house- and you are led up to the living area, which has been wonderfully preserved almost as was. The Garden the gem behind the walls in...More
