This garden displays the Hepworth sculptures in a small area with blooming flowers that only add to the atmosphere. Our guide was extremely informative about Hepworth’s life and this space which was both studio and home. Highly recommend!

I loved Barbara Hepworth's Museum and particularly the garden sculptures. Very small being in the middle of St Ives town but well worth a visit.

A beautifully balanced museum and garden. A stunning selection of the works of this amazing woman, inside and outside. Great to see her workspace and the documented history of her life and achievements. Great value for money. A beautiful setting to contemplate life and art.

Choose a fine day for your visit as, apart from one fairly small room, most of the sculptures are displayed in the garden. The garden itself is small, and rather dwarfed by some of the sculptures, but they are positioned to blend in perfectly with...More
