Twinning & Friendship Agreements

Twinning links

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:

Camaret Sur Mer, Brittany, France

Our longest standing twinning arrangement was revived in 2013 and will continue to be developed further.
