Take in the impressive landscapes and raw beauty of the Isles of Scilly, with their inviting beaches and native wildlife

For a truly relaxing break at a complete different pace, take a trip to the tranquil Isles of Scilly.

This group of islands is well known for it's lush subtropical climate, beautiful gardens, stunning scenery and powder-soft sandy beaches. This five-day trip is a great introduction to the archipelago - or the change to re-visit much-loved locations - and you'll understand why so many visitors consider the Isles of Scilly to be the UK's most idyllic spot.

A highlight of the tour is a trip to Tresco Abbey Garden, a botanical garden often described as "Kew without the glass". You'll also see the charming harbours of St Martin's, and get the chance to spot a huge range of wildlife which cannot be seen anywhere else in the UK.

Head of the Isles of Scilly Wildlife Trust, Julian Branscombe, will give a talk to explain the trust's work and share more about the Isles' native flora and fauna, including porpoises, dolphins, seals and many species of birds.

You'll stay at the comfortable Tregarthen's Hotel on St Mary's, a stone's throw from the quay.

"I wanted to say how much we enjoyed our holiday in the Scillies. It was all planned so well. The hotel was excellent along with the food everywhere we went. Thank you all."

- October 2022 Guest

    The garden was established in the 19th century around the ruins of an old Benedictine Abbey and is now home to a fantastic variety of plants from all over the world, including Brazil, New Zealand and South Africa. The garden changes throughout the year as different species thrive. In spring, flowers bloom here weeks before they do on the mainland thanks to the Tresco's special sub-tropical climate.
