Additional Information

The Flying Boat is named after the Royal Naval Air Station that was based on Tresco in World War One. The aircraft patrolled the Western Approaches, hunting German U-boats. If you look out of the seafront windows you can see the rails on which the flying boats were wheeled down to the sea.

You can take in the view from the restaurant via our live webcam
