An area of outstanding beauty, the Isles of Scilly are referred to by many as ‘The Fortunate Isles’. Only 28 miles from the mainland coast of Cornwall but in many ways a whole world away. Brushed by the Gulf Stream and washed by the Atlantic Ocean, the islands enjoy a climate that attracts rare birds, dolphins and seals. All year round exotic plants and flowers thrive.
Day 1 A morning pick up from your home by taxi, to join the Woods coach. We drive towards the west country, making a suitable stop for lunch. We arrive at Penzance Heliport for an afternoon flight to St Mary’s. You will be transferred to the hotel where you will receive a warm reception. A welcome drink will be served tonight before dinner.
