Wills Lane Gallery has a long standing pedigree of quality and promotes serious local and national artists, including many represented in national and international museums and galleries. It's easy to miss but it's right in the centre of St.Ives, it's worth a visit.

We were thoroughly impressed with the ceramics and some of the paintings/prints. Absolutely loved one set of prints but was short of £4k at the time! Rare to find a gallery who didn't mind the children too.
