A must see in St Ives. Smaller than you might think, the garen is well laid out and there is a more or less chronological display of BH's scultpures (as with most, long-lived artists, the best items are from the middle-aged prime).

Interesting visit but I think you need to appreciate art and sculpture more than we do the garden was nice to sit in especially if the weathers good.

This is a wonderful experience. Also a feat of engineering just curating it. With the sun in this garden and inconservatory one could stay all day.

I recommend the short talk about Barbara Hepworth every day (I think) at 1pm. I found this useful for her complex biography and its impact upon her art. The sculpture garden is outstanding, as is her workshop left as if she has just popped out.

Such powerful sculpture which still looks contemporary. A tiny litle house contains a really interesting museum and the garden takes your breath away with all the wonderful sculpture

The garden was idyllic and tranquil. Each sculpture was perfectly suited its setting. There was a sense that Barbara would come round the corner at any time having just completed another sculpture! I would like to come back here each day of my visit to...More
