A Trip to St Ives

As British holiday destinations go, St Ives in Cornwall is right up there with the best of them. Glorious white sandy beaches, hilltop walks, fresh fish, and some serious art in the form of Tate St Ives and Barbara Hepworth's sculpture garden. Our blog editor skipped off west for a weekend of sea air, sublime sculpture and a whole lot of ice cream.
