Itinerary

Description

Uncrowded, beautiful, and unspoilt, the Isles of Scilly lie just off the coast of Cornwall, but feel like a world away from the mainland. On this magical break we explore the largest island of this charming archipelago, St Mary’s, which has a fascinating history stretching back to the Bronze Age. From discovering the hidden treasures and incredible historic sites to enjoying the spectacular beaches, there is plenty to do here. We also venture to Tresco and experience its sub-tropical splendour with a visit to the island’s world-famous gardens.

Coach Itinerary

Day 1 
After joining the coach, we journey to either the County Arms in Truro (August departure) or the Penventon Park Hotel in Redruth (September departure) where we stay overnight.

Day 2 – Ferry to the Isles of Scilly
We travel to Penzance to catch the ferry to St Mary’s. In the afternoon, we enjoy a short coach tour which introduces us to the beautiful island of St Mary’s and helps us get our bearings. We visit Harry’s Walls, an unfinished artillery fort, and Garrison Walls, one of the most impressive coastal defence systems in Britain. Later, we check in to the Bell Rock Hotel, our base for the next four nights.

Day 3 – Day at leisure
Today we enjoy time at leisure in St Mary’s. Hugh Town is the central hub of the island with shops, cafés, galleries, restaurants and pubs as well as a wonderful museum. There are also three lovely beaches close by, or how about taking a boat to one of the beautiful neighbouring islands?


Day 4 – Tresco Abbey Garden
We catch the ferry across to Tresco, the second largest of the islands. Here we explore the glorious Tresco Abbey Garden, a horticultural paradise where some 20,000 exotic species from 80 countries thrive in the sub-tropical climate. Originally established as a private garden in the 19th century by island owner Augustus Smith, the diversity of plant life found within the garden is as extraordinary as it is unique.

Day 5 – Day at leisure
We enjoy a day at leisure today, an opportunity perhaps to discover St Mary’s historic treasures or to visit one of the neighbouring islands.

Day 6 – St Mary’s & ferry back to Penzance
This morning we have some more time at leisure in St Mary’s before catching an afternoon ferry back to Penzance. We then return to either the Penventon Park Hotel or the County Arms where we stay overnight. 

Day 7
After checking out of our hotel we board the coach for our return journey home.
