The Isles of Scilly are just 28 miles off the coast of Cornwall, close enough to visit for the day. Sail along Cornwall’s amazing coastline on Scillonian III from Penzance or fly Skybus from Land’s End and you will be on the Scilly Isles in good time for lunch. These stunning islands are fringed with sandy secluded beaches and criss-crossed with miles of trails and paths to walk, cycle or ride. Island ferries can take you to the gardens of Tresco or the rugged beauty of St Agnes. There is far more than you can see in a day and perhaps that is why so many people come back, time after time.
How To Get There?
Fly - You can ﬂy from Land's End with Isles of Scilly Travel where you'll soar above the iconic Cornish coast before heading out across the ocean to the irresistibly beautiful islands shimmering on the horizon. Flights take just 15 minutes or half an hour and operate all year round.
Ferry - Hop on to the Scillonian III at Penzance Docks and sail across the Atlantic for three hours before reaching St Mary's, the largest island out on the Scilly's. The ferry normally leaves Penzance around 8 am which means that you will reach land ready to explore by 11am -the only question you need to ask yourself is, what island first?
