As promised in my earlier post about Cornwall here are photos of the second place that we visited there a few weeks ago. This visit to St Ives was a real bonus and the weather was unexpected (to everyone else as well as Porthmeor beach was totally empty). We visited St Ives on our way home and managed to park right next to Porthmeor beach in order to visit the Tate St Ives. I want to visit again, at a quiet, special time like this.
Many friends have been to the Tate St Ives but this is the first time that we have visited and there was an exhibition on of William Scott's work which was an added bonus.
The building is centred around a viewing area cased in glass that looks out to the beach and sea and frames the seascape like a painting in every direction:
A must is to visit the rooftop cafe and sea the view from there:
