Be aware that St. Ives is very popular during the summer holiday season and can easily become over-crowded - best visited out of season.
Also worth noting that the streets are very narrow and closed to non-essential traffic at peak times - car parks are on the edge of the town and involve a walk with a steepish climb back.
A good option is the Lelant Park & Ride facility and a scenic train ride into St Ives - see:
