THE LOCATION St Ives, always a favourite, has now become one of the UK's foremost holiday destinations offering three award winning sandy beaches. The bay itself was voted by the Daily Mail as the third best bay in the world. The town is a maze of cobbled streets that offers a vast array of high quality restaurants, galleries and shops. Since the arrival of the Tate gallery, celebrating the town's connection with such luminaries as Whistler and Turner, the season has been extended to the full year. There is still a thriving and celebrated artist's colony attracted by the same conditions of light and scenery which once inspired the greats. During the summer months the town's population increases dramatically with the beaches awash with colour, popular in summer but also providing year round entertainment for surfers. The Tate St. Ives was opened in 1993. As well as permanent displays by local artists including Peter Lanyon, Patrick Herron, Sir Terry Frost and Barbara Hepworth, the gallery has a programme of exhibitions show casing the work of prominent modern and contemporary artists.
