St Ives; charming, colourful and creative.
The part of town close to the water is made up of short, steep streets, some cobbled and some not, that wind into each other. The streets are lined with coloured doors, leading to homes or holiday cottages each with individual names, tea rooms serving cream tea, cute gift shops and artist’s studios. We spent a part of everyday on our trip to St Ives, wandering the streets and being totally charmed by them all, despite the fact that we walked down many of the same streets more than once, the beauty of them didn’t tire. I also absolutely loved that the shops and eateries were either independent or local chains, I only saw a handful of chains that I recognised. So, take a walk…
