VIDEO: St Ives, Cornwall

5th Aug 2015

A beautiful video of St Ives in Cornwall that will make you want to drop whatever you are doing, jump in the car and head straight for one of its many beautiful beaches!

The picturesque fishing town of St Ives in West Cornwall is home to golden sandy beaches, bustling cobbled streets, independent shops and many art galleries including the Tate and the Barbara Hepworth Museum. This video by Chris Rule of Shiney Eye, filmed during the April bank holiday captures the town’s atmosphere perfectly. Make sure you watch the whole video because the ending is beautiful.
