The Isles of Scilly lie just off the coast of Cornwall and remain unspoilt, uncrowded and very beautiful, perfect for a holiday.
Go Island hopping to the five inhabited islands, St Mary’s, Tresco, St Martin’s, Bryher and St Agnes. The islands have been part of the Duchy of Cornwall since 1337, when it was created.
There are 140 islands and rocky Islets which make up the Isles of Scilly. It’s one of the largest archipelagos in the world.
Don’t miss a trip to the wonderful Tresco Abbey Gardens.
There are day trips available on flights, or on a passenger ferry, and lots of activities, but a slower pace of life once you are there.
