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.

I always take time to visit Barbara house and studio. Such a beautiful garden tucked away from the bustle of St Ives. I love looking at her tools in her studio and the informative exhibition about her life.

Serene private garden location set back from the bustling seafront of St Ives. Amazing sculpture of Dame Barbara Hepworth up close and in their setting close to their origination. Fond memories of seeing the sculptures and meeting their creator some fifty years ago are rekindled...More
