“A place for quiet contemplation”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 26, 2012

Plenty of history here, look at the well known and not so well know graves and absorb the history - must be one of the most idyllic locations for a graveyard, great views out to sea.

“Sue has family there”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 17, 2012

Wonderful spot although you will not appreciate it if there. My wife's family are in residence, the view is great and I just wonder how long it will be before the Tate gallery wants to build on it.

“It's a graveyard!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 26, 2012

On a very steep hillside by side of Tate St.Ives. Worth a wander around to locate grave of Alfred Wallis, artist and mariner. Interesting ceramic memorial.

“When I die I'd like to rest here.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 14, 2012 via mobile

What a place to rest your head when you die. Great to see it at midnight in the summer on a ghost walk, I will always remember the tale of the rats. Wonderful place to sit and watch the sea.

This cemetery has a beautiful outlook and has a real sense of tranquillity. Lovely for a stroll especially at night.
