The Drill Hall

The Drill Hall in St Ives is a hidden find. Originally the building was the Teetotal Methodist Chapel but it has now been converted into a lovely space filled with quirky and unusual shops.   At the entrance to the space is Cafe Art a wonderful cafe which hosts all kinds of slightly different events together with changing Art Exhibtions. Cafe Art has free wifi and some very good coffee not to mention a range of different tasty lunchtime (or anytime!) snacks. Pete and Zoe are a lovely couple and the place has a very friendly and homely feel. Many locals make it their second home 🙂 Follow  them on facebook.  http://www.facebook.com/cafeart.stives

But there is more…………..go inside and you see Favela which sells lovely original children’s tops, Salon Uno for all your hairdressing needs and of course the new She. Also inside is the well known Poppy Treffry. Newly opened Chic Abode has interesting and ecletic Cornish crafts for every home.

Any of you looking for Brooksmith Gallery they have moved and are now concentrating their time near Bath where they live. If you miss them and want to buy just go on to their website. http://www.brookssmithgallery.co.uk

The Drill Hall is on the corner of Chapel Street – just near the Co-op and sort of opposite the cinema. Don’t miss it!
