Autumn In St Ives

Autumn in St Ives…and October fun for all!

Summer may have gone and the leaves are falling from the trees, but come October it’s time to swap your flipflops and trainers for your wellies and walking boots and come and enjoy what St Ives has to offer in the Autumn!

Golden sandy beaches without the crowds, and the very mild weather makes October a very special time to visit…why not bring your faithful four legged friends too? The beach bans are “history” and roaming is free! Explore the stunning South West Coast path with its spectacular scenery and walk along to Zennor and have lunch and a pint at the Tinners Arms…you can even get the bus back!

For all of you budding artists the Tate’s extensive refurbishment program has nearly finished and officially re-opens on October 14th with an exciting new exhibition of modern art in St Ives focusing on local artists who have lived and worked in St Ives over past and present.

Later in the month, let the family fun begin, as it’s October half term! There are many attractions open:

The Eden Project has Ice skating for all, and why not take your children to the Little Monsters Halloween ball disco after. Paradise Park has its annual Owl prowl or why not take the kids up to Newquay Zoo or Lappa Valley for a really fun day out, or pop over to Flambards theme park and share in their Halloween fireworks. For those made of sterner stuff, Porthmeor beach surf school is open all week, or if you fancy sea sports with a difference, visit Carbis Bay Beach where Ocean sports will be offering standing up paddle boarding, sea kayaking or try their new Hawaiian outrigger experience, fun for all the family!

And of course all of our wonderful restaurants, shops and galleries will be open as usual making St Ives the perfect Autumn getaway this October. 

To take advantage of some very special October offers over half term, or short breaks throughout October, you can book online or just give our very friendly Cherished team a call on 01736 490 640, we’re waiting for your call!
