St Ives, including the Eden Project
From the archives, a short visit to St Ives, Cornwall, including a visit to the Eden Project in 2017.
St Ives is a Cornish town known for its surfing and art galleries focusing on British artists, including yhe Barbara Hepworth Museum and Sculpture Garden. Both galleries were, unfortunately, closed during our visit.

The project was conceived by Tim Smit and Jonathan Ball, and designed by Grimshaw Architects and structural engineering firm Anthony Hunt Associates
