Tate Art Gallery
St Ives is home to a number of art galleries, all well worth a visit whilst you're staying in the St Ives Bay Hotel. The largest and most popular of these is the famous Tate St Ives, which features a museum and sculpture garden, ever-changing art exhibits, a gift shop and a lovely café with views over to the beach.
Off the coast of St Ives Bay, the Godrevy Lighthouse is a local landmark. The lighthouse was built in the late 1850s and various coastal walking trails, suitable for beginners, provide a good view of the structure.
Located in Hayle, just a short drive from St Ives, Paradise Park describes itself as 'Cornwall's animal sanctuary'. The attraction is home to more than 650 colourful birds as well as red pandas, otters, wild animal, farm animals and domestic pets. There's also a large indoor play area for children.
