Trip Planner: Europe / UK / England / Cornwall / St Ives / 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.

Beautiful quaint garden with numerous fascinating sculptures closely integrated for easy viewing. Excellent photographic opportunities from various angles (although I was told no flash is allowed). I would highly recommend this hidden gem in the town centre of St Ives. Parking can be tricky at the height of the season we parked at the rugby club and walked into the town. In my opinion, although this is smaller than some of the larger sculpture gardens, the sculptures are much more beautiful and intriguing and I would prefer to spend my time in this tranquil little oasis.
Lovely little museum all about the life and works of the famous sculptor, Barbara Hepworth. Takes about an hour to appreciate all of the information on display and wander through the sculpture garden. Try to go while the sun is shining to take some stunning photos of her works outside.
