Monday 10 October

We depart early from Devon and make our way to Penzance where we leave the coach and board the Scillonian passenger ferry to St Mary's. From the ferry you can view a unique perspective of some of Cornwall's most iconic coastline, you may even be lucky enough to spot a pod of dolphins. We arrive in St Mary's around lunchtime and you will have a chance to explore the island before enjoying dinner in our hotel.


Tuesday 11 October

After a full English Breakfast in our hotel, enjoy an introductory tour of St Mary's by coach with commentary.


Wednesday &Thursday

On your two free days there is plenty for you to see and explore. St Mary's itself is an ideal base to catch a ferry to one of the other inhabited islands, St Martin's and St Agnes are two of the more popular islands to visit there is plenty of history and archaeology alongside sweeping sea views and of course some amazing wildlife. The island of St Mary's covers a total of 2.5 square miles, Hugh Town is where the hotel is located and is the central hub with a cluster of shops, churches, galleries and restaurants and has three lovely beaches in very close proximity - Porthcressa, Town Beach and Porthmellon. Old town is the other 'major' settlement on St Mary's and has its own beautiful beach, nature reserve and the beautiful Old Town Church where Sir Harold Wilson is buried. A good way to discover the entire island is to hire a golf buggy so you can start and stop at your own leisure. Tresco is a beautiful, tranquil, family owned island that is the second largest of the islands and a subtropical gem. The island has a little bit of everything from dramatic rocky outcrops, bronze age burial sites and romatic castle ruins, to secluded sandy beaches. The rugged north of the island is a great place to walk and explore while in the centre of the island there are bird hides to seek out and Tresco's freshwater pools and of course not forgetting the world famous sugar-fine white sands of Pentle and Appletree Bay.


Friday 14 October

After a full English breakfast you have the day free to explore before we catch the late afternoon ferry back to Penzance, where we meet our Tally Ho coach for our return journey to Devon.
