Hailed as the ultimate year-round holiday destination, it is praised for its mix of adult- and child-friendly attractions and things to do and has been singled out as possessing a unique art scene steeped in history. It is no surprise that St Ives is a massive hit. For a small town it offers such variety from bucket-and-spade beaches to high culture. Things to see and do:
Beautifully positioned overlooking Porthmeor Beach, the famous Tate St Ives art gallery - visit www.tate.org.uk/visit/tate-st-ives
The home and garden of one of Britain's finest sculptors, the Barbara Hepworth Museum - visit http://barbarahepworth.org.uk/
