Where to Find Us

Our Research Centre is housed in the old St Uny School building at the rear of the Wesley Methodist Church, Carbis Bay. Access is to the left side of the church and does involve some steps. This may be difficult, especially for wheelchair users. Prior notice of your needs will help considerably in making your visit as agreeable as we can accomplish.

Car parking is not available at the Archive or along St Ives Road. There is parking in the residential area of Higher Boskerris but we ask visitors to be respectful of the needs of local residents.

How to Book Your Visit

Thank you for your interest in visiting St Ives Archive. There is no entry fee and there is no charge if you are conducting personal research. However, we are a registered charity and rely entirely on donations to continue preserving the important history of St Ives.

We encourage visitors, where possible, to book a visit in advance as it helps us to prepare and coordinate with the volunteers who specialise in the topic they are interested in.
