Travel to St Ives: Cheap buses, trains and flights

About St. Ives

St. Ives is a small seaside resort on the North coast of Cornwall, that is famous for the beautiful quality of its light throughout the year. This has been a draw to many artists and sculptors who have chosen to live and work in the city over the decades. The original town centre huddles around its bay and is full of little streets, quaint, original shops and varied dining, ranging from gastro-pubs, freshly caught and prepared fish and chips, to high-end gourmet choices.
