Things to do in St Ives - The St Ives Treasure Trail

Please Note: As much as we love people exploring on our Trails, now is not the right time. We want to help the NHS and protect all of you, so have decided to remove the facility for any Trail sales to be made on our website. As soon as social restrictions are relaxed, we'll make the Trails available again. If you would like to be informed as soon as this is, please drop us a note on the contact page.

The St Ives Treasure Trail starts at:

Station Road
St Ives
TR26 2BP

Please Note:

This Trail has not been marked as wheelchair or pushchair friendly due to cobbled streets, some flights of steps and steep hills, as well as stretches of narrow roads with no pavements.

Bring your four-legged friends along! Please note that there is one Clue that is in an area where dogs are not permitted, so we could not advise bringing along your pup if you are doing the Trail alone.

The closest pay and display car park is located at The Station, where this Trail begins. There are only a limited number of spaces in this car park, so you may wish to park at Trenwith car park and use the shuttle bus service into town. Alternatively, why not park at St Erth or Lelant Saltings Railway stations and take the scenic "The St Ives Bay Line" train journey to the start of your Trail adventure?

There are some fantastic events in the St Ives calendar, from the local Feast Day and May Day celebrations, to the popular Lifeboat Day is August and several food and drink events throughout the year. All of these occasions are fantastic times to visit this beautiful town, however you may find that some of the Clues on this Trail may become obstructed or difficult to access. If you would like further information about event dates, please contact St Ives Visitor Information

There are public toilets available at various points throughout the Trail and the route passes several pubs, restaurants and a few cafes along the way.

Why not make a day of it and visit the Tate Gallery and Barbara Hepworth Museum for some arts and culture, discover more of St Ives' rich history at the town Museum, or spend your afternoon with your toes in the sand and an ice cream in hand!
