As I have said before – St Ives can be a very unpleasant place, overcrowded and crammed with cars. After the success of my out of season visit in October 2008, I thought I’d give Spring a go.
As a change, rather than add to the traffic chaos and waste a hour trying to find a parking spot, I took the train from St. Erth. This not just a regular train journey, it hugs the coast and is one of the most scenic routes in the country,
It was another sunny day and St Ives was once again a pleasant place hardly any traffic and not too many people – I just have to remember in the future that I shouldn’t visit in the summer.
The other highlight was lunch On my last visit I had an excellent Sunday Lunch in the Sloop Inn, so I thought I would give it another go.
I had a mixed shellfish salad which was excellent and included the best Mussels I have ever tasted.
