If you are a first time visitor to St Ives, or have been before but would like to expand your knowledge of this beautiful town, then Welcome to St Ives is the perfect tour for you.

We will take a leisurely walk around the town, stopping at points of historical interest to share some quirky facts, learn some insights into the lives of the townspeople, and hear about the legends that give St Ives its unique character and history.

This tour is particularly suitable for families, with plenty of stories that will enthral adults and children alike. By the end of the tour you will be able to amaze your friends with your knowledge, and will have a much better insight into the town that is so much more than beaches and restaurants (although they will be featured!).
