About the neighbourhood
St Ives is well known as a popular holiday destination, famous for its beautiful beaches, excellent surfing and many art galleries. St Ives has a September Festival. The St Ives September Festival is one of the longest running and widest ranging Festivals of the Arts in the UK. The duration of the festival goes about 15 days and includes a range of arts from Music (including Folk, Jazz, Rock, Classical & World) to Poetry, Film, Talks and Books. It was founded in 1978 as a joint venture by a group of local entrepreneurs and the nearby International Musicians Seminar. There is a May day celebration like no other, which culminates in dancing around the Knill Monument. The fun stuff is the surfing, the beaches, the wonderful array of arts to buy and that unique quality of light that drew artists to the town in the first place.
Getting around
There are trains and buses available . Open top bus takes you to Sennen, Porthcrurno, Penzance , and beyond. Catch plane to the Scilly Islands for the day, Explore the wonderful National Trust Gardens.
