Things to do

Make the most of Scilly

Scilly is well known for its simple pleasures and relaxed pace of life. Visitors love the scenery, the peace, the tranquillity. There’s plenty of reason of kick back, relax and do very little, but plenty to enjoy too. Get out about on island walks, have fun on the water, check out the fantastic wildlife, hop from island to island, breathe in the exquisite flora, visit artists and galleries, and immerse yourself in our history and heritage.

Find out more here, or if you’re on island, visit the Tourist Information Centre on Porthcressa Beach for the low-down. Pop in or follow @scillyTIC to keep up to date with the weekly What's On, available throughout the season.
