Take the train from London Paddington departing at 10.05hrs* - due to arrive in Penzance at 15.10 hrs. On arrival in Penzance you will be transferred to Land’s End in time for your flight to the Scillies, which only takes 15 minutes. On St Mary’s you will be taken to the quayside for a short boat transfer to Tresco. After being welcomed at the New Inn and shown to your room you are free to relax and enjoy the exceptional views. In the evening there will be a welcome presentation on how to get the most from your visit to Tresco.
Day two and three
You are now free to explore Tresco at your leisure - the castles, beaches, headland walks, browse in the gallery or relax in the resident’s lounge. There will be guided walks around the Abbey gardens and the Valhalla collection of ship's figureheads with the head gardener and his staff. Visiting other islands can easily be arranged - Bryher, St Martins, St Agnes and St Marys. Regular boat trips to see the sea birds and seals of the Western rocks, and if you are feeling adventurous, it is sometimes possible to circumnavigate Bishop's Rock lighthouse.
It is time to leave Tresco, and a morning boat will take us to St Mary’s for our return flight to Land’s End. On arrival we will be transferred to Penzance in time for our afternoon train back to Paddington due to arrive at approx 19.30 hrs.
Please note train times at this stage are provisional - exact times will be confirmed with your joining instructions approximately ten days prior to departure.
Please note - Walking Fitness - As Tresco has no cars, we believe it fair to remind passengers that a degree of mobility is required to get the most out of your visit to the island.
Our accommodation on Tresco will be at the popular four-star ETB/AA graded New Inn – one of only 12 pubs in Cornwall listed in the new “Eating Out in Pubs” Michelin guide. As the helicopter touches down by the Abbey gardens you instinctively know your visit is going to be special. There is a friendly bustling atmosphere here and all rooms are en suite and are comfortably furnished. There is a separate residents’ bar and a heated outdoor pool which is open May to September (weather permitting).
