Just 28 miles off the rugged Cornish Coast lie the beautiful Isles of Scilly. This tiny archipelago, consisting of five inhabited islands and hundreds of
smaller rocks and islets, is blessed with white sand beaches and surrounded
by azure seas that, in Summer, can make you feel as if you were in the
A short voyage from the mainland by sea or air accesses this truly unique
island group that offers a tranquil and memorable holiday slowing you down
from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. It allows you to be at one with your
surroundings whilst breathing in the ozone rich air that has been cleansed
by 3000 miles of Atlantic Ocean.
Sub-tropical flora grows freely throughout the islands giving proof, if it
were needed, that you have arrived in a very special part of the United
Kingdom. St Mary’s, the largest of the island group, acts as the hub and
makes an idea base from which to explore each of the smaller ‘Off Islands’.
The Isles of Scilly have a fascinating past which has played a major part in shaping
British history since well before the Elizabethan era. A Star shaped Castle and
fortification that defended the English Channel, on St Mary’s, possibly the oldest
lighthouse in the country, on St Agnes, one of the first Daymark navigation points
in the country, on St Martin’s and a World renowned garden created in an Abbey ruin
by one of the most forward thinking entrepreneurial Victorian gentlemen, on Tresco.
There is so much to enthral and excite a visitor to the Isles of Scilly that the islands
magic will entice them back time and time again creating everlasting memories of
this unequalled location.
