Easter in St Ives

Conor Fletcher

St Ives is the perfect place to explore throughout the year, but at the start of springtime; in Easter holidays the town is the perfect time to visit and discover the new and the old and experience a perfect break in Cornwall in our luxury apartments in St Ives. The past year has seen Tate, St Ives expand it's interiors and detail more and more of the local artistic and cultural heritage, this Easter there's no question that this isn't at the forefront of everyone's minds. An exhibition of Virginia Woolf is taking place with works inspired by her writing, not only that the Tate offers a glimpse into the relationship of Modern Art and the town, going through the years exploring artists and their relationships with this location. It becomes ever clear that art is once again at taking centrestage what looking at what's on in St Ives this Easter.

While the arts and the town's history may be taking the focus this Easter that doesn't mean that the St Ives everyone knows and loves is going anywhere. The seas are still wonderfully clear and blue, the skies painted with differing shades of pastell as the sun drifts across the sky, and of course the golden sands of Porthmeor beach stretch out for the perfect warming afternoon on the beach. What makes staying in our luxury apartments in St Ives so special and unique is how close everything is; mere moments after waking up on a warm March morning you can find yourself on the beach or in the ocean and, if you'd like, in the same spot for the rest of the day.
