The Isles of Scilly
The Isles of Scillyare the most westerly part ofBritain. An archipelago of 140 islands, with nothing between them and the USA, they are blessed with a benign climate, despite recieving gale force winds during winter. There are five main inhabited islands;St Mary’s beingthe most developed.Clementweather produces early flowers, and flower growing remains a considerable industry. The Scillies were designated anArea of Outstanding Natural Beautyin 1975.
Tresco, the second largest island, is also much visited, thanks in large part to the fabulous Abbey Gardens.St Martin’s, the third largest island, is very unspoilt. Here you can find Bronze Age burial chambers and the remains of a 5th century chapel. Daffodils and Amaryllis Belladonna are grown commercially. but it’s the gorgeous beaches and crystal waters that most people come for.
St Agnes, the most southwesterly island, is popular with its lovely coastline, white sand beaches, coves and rock pools.
Small and quiet,Bryheris peppered with pre-historic sites. Covered in a blaze of grose and wild flowers in spring and summer, it’s another paradise. Bryher makes a perfect gateway from the stresses of modern life, its coastal path offering fabuluos views of the rocky shoreline and across the water to Tresco. The Scilly Isles offer something for everyone.
