Always glad to have visitors! Art looks better in real life...
Walking: From the far corner of St Ives Harbour nearest The Sloop Inn, turn left into Fore Street. We are 60 yards up on the left, next to Cath Kidston (why does everyone always know Cath Kidston?!) but also opposite 'The Digey' which leads you to The Tate. From the market place end of Fore St, walk all the way down until you reach the bend to the right. We are on the right about 30 yards further.
Car Parking: It is always worth driving down into the centre of St Ives, right along the harbour front, and into the small car park in the corner by The Balancing Eel fish & chip shop (best chips in St Ives, by the way). You may have to queue but even in summer someone usually leaves within a few mins.
Train: A great experience to arrive at St Ives by train. One of the most beautiful train rides in the country, weaving along the cliff by the dunes, past Carbis Bay beach and around the coast with iconic views of St Ives. Walk out of the station, down the steps on the right (near the station or at end of the car park), and follow the lovely little road down in to the town. Keep right and walk along by the harbour beach (across it if you like!) and in the far corner, turn left up into Fore Street.
Our gallery is large, bright and inviting. The paintings look lovely. Don't miss our 'Abbey Gallery' at the rear of the main gallery.
Bus & Train: Arrive at Bath train station or bus station - they are adjacent to each other. Face away from the train station entrance and head north, up Manvers Street. When you can see the Abbey, behind a row of shops to your left, we are one of those shops. About 4 minutes walk.
Walking: From the entrance to the Roman Baths in the Abbey Square: we are immediately behind the Abbey and can be reached via either side of the Abbey. Quickest: face the Abbey and turn right, crossing the square with the bench seats and turn left at York Street. At the end of York Street, we are two shops to the left. 2 minutes walk.
Car Parking: Outside our shop, you can stop briefly on the loading bays, outside Scoffs or outside the Abbey Hotel. You will get only 10 minutes there before risk of a ticket. For longer parking, we recommend the Sports & Leisure Centre Car Park, along North Parade Street, opposite our shop. Turn 1st left over the bridge. The spaces are of generous size. Alternatives are the cricket ground opposite the Leisure Centre, or the Manvers Street car park which is often full and is more cramped.
