Another of St Ives hidden gems, this exhibition is in Hepworth's studio and garden and so feels very intimate. The works displayed are a good representation of what she created and the exhibition is very informative.

A nice way to spend some time while in St. Ives. Step outside to the sculpture garden is very unique.

Thank you for the feedback and it's great to hear you enjoyed your visit. The newly reopened Tate St Ives features works by Hepworth and many of her contemporaries - definitely worth a visit.

We ended up going to this museum while waiting for the train back to St. Erths. The park has a lot of sculptures. Probably better if you are familiar with Barbara Hepburn.
