Just 28 miles off the coast of Cornwall, but a world away from the mainland

Discover the magical Isles of Scilly, a group of sand-fringed islands just 28 miles off the coast of Cornwall basking in a warmer climate than anywhere else in the UK. The pace of life on these utterly unspoilt islands is relaxing, but there is plenty to do on the five inhabited islands if you’re in need of adventure. Scilly has it all – miles of coastal footpaths, deserted white sandy beaches, a growing food scene, watersports, wildlife and more. These spectacular car-free islands are close enough to visit for the day – or perhaps stay a little longer – and find out why visitors return time and time again.
