About Scilly Isles

Not far from Cornwall, the Scilly Isles is an archipelago comprised of five islands off the coast of southwest England. Scilly Isles cruises usually tender in Hugh Town on the Isle of St. Mary's. In Hugh Town, cruisers can explore a historical Old Town center, dine on fresh fish in a restaurant overlooking the harbor or take a stroll to a nearby Iron Age settlement.

Beyond St. Mary's, smaller, quieter islands offer the chance to experience a slower way of life. For example, the Island of Tresco is known for its well-kept Abbey Gardens, while St. Martin's is famed for its beaches.
