Visited the Tate St Ives and bought a combined ticket to the Hepworth museum and garden too. So glad we did as it was a delight and well worth the short walk up the hill.

Was really good to see the sculptures out of a gallery setting and where some of them were made. The garden looked fabulous even in the middle of winter,

View the beautiful indoor sculptures then wander round the garden amongst tranquil, stunning sculptures, interspersed with flowers and architectural plants. Every pathway leading to new views. Just such a beautiful relaxing place to visit.

Been to the Barbara Hepworth a couple of times and it is always a real treat. My favourite part is the garden and I could sit out there all day
