Trains to St Ives

The train journey to St Ives has to be one of the most scenic in Britain. The sweeping coastline with the glistening golden sands of Hayle Towans and Carbis Bay calm visitors minutes before arriving in front of St Ives’ own beach. At the time of the station’s opening in 1877, St Ives’ fishing industry was in steep decline. Rail arrived just in time, opening this beautiful town up to the outside world. Artists, eager to utilise the quality of light and enjoy the tropical-style climate, clambered aboard carriages destined for the Cornish town, and St Ives quickly became a British art institution. Today, The Tate St Ives serves up the works of British Modernism greats, Patrick Heron, Ben Nicholson and Barbara Hepworth. Sleepy coastal town in winter and bustling tourist hotspot the rest of the year, St Ives lulls visitors with its tranquil atmosphere of the town centre’s cobbled streets, a short walk down the hill from the station.
