St Ives, Cornwall is proud of its longstanding traditions, beautiful location, strong community and a cultural heritage of art and pottery.
We are pleased to recognise that we share many attributes and values with other areas of the world, including:
Our longest standing twinning arrangement was revived in 2013 and will continue to be developed further.
With many similarities between St Ives in Cornwall and Laguna Beach, California, the Friendship Agreement between the two was agreed in 2013.
The Friendship Agreement with Mashiko, Japan was brought about due to the strong association between the potters of Mashiko and the Leach Potter, St Ives.
