The Unspoilt Isles of Scilly
Low Deposit £25pp
Journey to a hidden treasure of the British Isles, an archipelago off the Cornish coast boasting azure seas and almost tropical climes. By overnight sleeper train from London, discover the glorious Islands of Scilly.
Meet your Tour Manager at the First Class Lounge at Paddington Station. From here you will board the Riviera Sleeper, a rail service that runs through the night to Penzance, staying in sleeper cabins for the duration of the journey.
After an evening spent riding the rails, today you will transfer to Penzance harbour in time for the direct ferry to the Island of St Mary's, where you check in to The Atlantic Hotel for the next 3 nights*.
Please Note: Hotel may vary depending on departure.
Enjoy a full day exploring St Mary's today on a guided walking tour that takes in the region's most prestigious beauty spots such as the Old Town, whose church is the final resting place of former Prime Minister, Sir Harold Wilson. Day 4 then includes a guided walking tour of Tresco, the second largest of Scilly's Isles.
Your excursion takes you to the sub tropical Abbey Gardens, a haven for sun-loving plants from all over the world. With a collection as diverse as it is beautiful, wander the exotic lined pathways of this enchanting Scillonian attraction.
Take the ferry to St Agnes today, the Scilly's southern-most populated island. Enjoy some free time to explore this peaceful destination, an idyllic mile of remote beaches that boasts a welcoming pub, keeping the island's 72 inhabitants refreshed all year round. Afterwards, return to St Mary's for the ferry to Penzance, where you enjoy a final meal before you catch the Riviera Sleeper back to London.
Please note: For departures 19ISS03 and 19ISS05 we will fly back from St Marys to Lands End and then catch the train from Penzance to London.
After pulling into Paddington Station this morning, you disembark the train and are free to make your own way home.
Some departures may fly back on Day 5, and return by first class rail to London, arriving on the same day. Please call for more details.
