Tate St Ives
Overlooking Porthmeor Beach, Tate St Ives displays the best of international modern and contemporary art...

Tate St Ives also manages the Barbara Hepworth Museum and Sculpture Garden, which gives a remarkable insight into the work and outlook of one of Britain's most important 20th century sculptors.
