The Idyllic Island of Tresco
- 3 nights dinner, bed and full breakfast at the New Inn, Tresco.
- Return train fare London Paddington/Penzance.
Please note that other departure points and first class upgrades are possible on request. Overnight accommodation can be organised in London before or after the tour. A reduction of £40 per person applies for those making their own way to and from Penzance.
- Return helicopter transfers to the Scilly Isles.
- Entry to Tresco’s Abbey Gardens.
To take the strain out of the long drive to Penzance we have arranged train transportation from London Paddington departing at 10.05hrs* - due to arrive in Penzance at 15.10 hrs. - what a pleasant way to cross the south of England. For passengers wishing to travel from other mainline stations or who wish a first-class upgrade, please contact our reservations department for assistance on 01334 657155. 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 2 & 3
You are now free to explore Tresco at your leisure - the ancient castles, beautiful beaches, headland walks, browse in the gallery or simply relax in the resident’s lounge. There will be guided walks around the magnificent 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. One of the joys of the Scillies is the fact that all the islands easily interact with each other. 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.
Sadly 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 4-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). Just four days here will leave you feeling renewed and revitalised!
