The house is tucked away from the harbour but certainly worth a visit when in St Ives. The garden is truly magical and enhanced with wonderful modern art works sculpted by Hepworth. The house has a memorable atmosphere. Pleasant staff.

Had a wonderful visit to this museum, very informative and interesting. Was unfamiliar with Hepworth’s work, but am now a fan. The absolutely delightful sculpture garden is worth a trip to St Ives in and of itself. Don’t miss it.
