Lovely Time at St. Ives, Cornwall

It was funny because when I first heard about St Ives and when we started talking about of visiting this place, that this is every nice, and people around UK are fun of coming here to spend holidays instead of going outside the UK! Uuummm quite interesting isn't it? Then I thought that all the St. Ives products have manufactured or originally came from this place... I had a laugh from them really...LOL
St. Ives, Cornwall is a small town in the far west of the county. Though originally a fishing village, it has for the last 150 years become both a popular holiday destination and an internationally renowned school of painting. This place (Cornish: Porth Ia) is a seaside town, civil parish and port in the Penwith district of Cornwall, England UK. The town lies north of Penzance, and west of Camborne. In former times it was commercially dependent on fishing as an industry. The decline in fishing, however, has caused a shift in commercial emphasis and the town is now primarily a holiday resort. St Ives was incorporated by Royal charter in 1639. St Ives has been named best seaside town of 2007 by the Guardian and has become renowned for its number of artists.

With narrow winding cobbled streets and passages, a magnificent harbour, and superb beaches, all just around the corner from Lands End. In summer the hanging basket flower planter displays all around the Harbour and the Main Streets are a delight to the eye. Those in front of the St Ives Tourist Information Centre, at the Guildhall, deserve a particular mention.

This is a place that truly has something for everyone. Families can spend countless hours playing in the golden sands of the resorts gently sloping beaches, or simply, taking a relaxing dip in the un-characteristically warm sea.
