News & Events
Throughout the season (mid-March to end of the October) and at Christmas / February half-term, weekly "What's Ons" are produced every Friday afternoon for the following week, starting Saturdays. They are available to pick up at the Tourist Information Centre on Porthcressa Beach. Most accommodation providers also have them to hand, too. The Tourist Information Centre (and various outlets across Scilly) also sells handy Pocket Map Guides for £1 - giving you walking maps of all the islands, ideas of places to visit, where to eat, boat times and excursions, and more!
