Walk About St Ives
It isn’t too often we get excited here at the GCG about an app… we love interactive techy things but apps just haven’t gone big on our radar until we discovered something a little interesting.
St Ives: choc-full of arty, artisan, foodie, cultural and utterly fabulous scenery. The beaches are long sandy stretches with hidden surfing hot spots and harbour front with a piscatorial and seagull panorama. Always the best way to see St Ives is on foot – driving around the tiny cobble streets doesn’t cut it – and an in-depth guide to St Ives on the iPhone (or Android for you alternative folk out there) is a handy and informative piece of tech.
Which is exactly what Denzil Monk thought, so he created the St Ives walk-about app. Not only does it give you right up to date info as you walk around the town, it also allows you to scan and see what the town would have looked like way back when. Perfect for history buffs, St Ives visitors and for garnering that extra bit of Cornish cultural know-how.
Next time you get the itch make sure to download the handy app here, especially if you are staying in one of the holiday cottages in St Ives. Get walking and let the GCG know what you discover!
