The enchanting Isles of Scilly await on this stunning tour. Explore the Islands, surrounded by azure waters, and filled with a magical variety of gardens, towns, and beaches, and enjoy a trip on the St Ives Bay Line.
Meet your Tour Manager at the First Class Lounge in Paddington Station ahead of our journey to St Erth today. From here, we transfer to our hotel in nearby Carbis Bay, where we enjoy our first dinner together this evening.
On Day 2, we are immersed in the beauty of Cornwall's west coast as we take in the spectacular golden sands and seascapes as we travel along the St Ives Bay Line to St Ives. After free time here, we transfer by coach, pausing at legendary Land's End, before continuing around Cape Cornwall to Penzance, where romantic St Michael's Mount enchants from the sea. Following free time here, we return to our hotel by coach.
After breakfast this morning, we transfer by coach to Land's End Airport, we split into groups to take a short Skybus flight over to St Mary's in the Scilly Isles. We transfer to our hotel, the 3-Star Atlantic Hotel, and the rest of your day is at leisure to get acquainted with our delightful base for the next 5 days. We explore the town further on a guided walking tour on Day 4, taking in some of the most lovely sights, including the Old Town. The church here contains the resting place of Sir Harold Wilson, who served as the Prime Minister of the United Kingdom in the 1970s.
Please note: For departure SCS1904 we catch the ferry to and from the Scilly Isles.
Today, we enjoy a true highlight of the tour, as we visit Tresco and the Abbey Gardens. Begin with a walking tour of the largest of Scilly's Isles, before venturing onwards to the incredible Abbey Gardens. Here, you can be forgiven if you think you have been transported to Italy, as the gardens are filled with a stunning array of sub-tropical plants from all over the world. Enjoy some time to wander the exotic lined paths of this enchanting attraction, before returning to St Mary's.
Enjoy a full day at leisure today, perhaps venturing out to one of the numerous other islands. Tonight, we enjoy a special farewell meal. On Day 7, we enjoy our final breakfast before transferring to St Mary's ferry port, for the ferry back to Penzance. After dinner in a local restaurant here, you join the Riviera Sleeper back to London. After your arrival in London Paddington Station on the morning of Day 8, your tour concludes.
