Create an itinerary including Barbara Hepworth Museum and Sculpture Garden
A typical stone house in St. Ives on the outside, Barbara Hepworth Museum and Sculpture Garden reveals the creative hub of an artist on the inside. The living room's original furnishings remain as they were left while the artist's workshop holds half-finished paintings, tools, and materials. The garden beside the house is another work of art that was designed by Hepworth and friend Priaulx Rainier, the South-African composer.

  • Amazing place preserved as a piece of history for all to enjoy. You get to see how Hepworth lived and worked in this beautiful studio space and garden. It’s filled with her work dotted around the wholes space. The garden is beautiful and very peaceful. We arrived early and I would recommend doing the same as it was getting quite busy by the time we were leaving.
  • This is simply the best place in St Ives and ranks as one of my favourite places in the world - personal preference of course! Peaceful and serene, with a wonderful atmosphere that just shines regardless of the weather. It seems different every time I have been there and is simply a must see if you visit St Ives. It is perfect to just sit and be.
