I really enjoyed looking around this small but perfectly formed sculpture garden. So many sculptures together here. Interesting museum to begin with to learn about the background first. I was able to use the Gardeners World 2 for 1 entry card here so it was...More

Definitely one of the two highlights of our stay in St Ives (the other being some of the restaurants) - the garden with the sculptures, though small is lovely. The story of Barbara Hepworth's life is also worth reading.

If your in to sculptures this will certainly please you. The history and gallery are interesting but the garden with sculptures, plants and a pond make this a great little place to visit.

This was totally unexpected. We visited the Tate and paid for joint entry to the Tate and to the Barbara Hepworth Sculpture garden. Well worth it - and we probably spent more time in the garden than we did in the Tate (which I found...More

In terms of just giving you a really good flavour of an artists work- along with some fascinating and curious examples this was great. We listened in on a tour as well which was helpful and the exhibits were well labelled and explained. Enjoyed it...More
