Tickets on sale now!

Welcome to our dedicated Walk Scilly page – where you’ll find everything you need to know to have a fantastic week on the islands, with expert walking guides leading the way. 

This April, we’ve got some 29 walks from which to choose across all five inhabited islands and three of the uninhabited islands. Each day from Saturday 1st to Friday 7th April, you can choose from four or five whole and half day walks, and we’ve set the programme to make sure you can visit a different island a day, so you won’t miss out on getting to see the whole archipelago if that’s your aim! Go foraging, stroll through sub-tropical gardens, take a farm tour, beachcomb for cowrie shells or simply do each island Top to Toe. Walk at sunset, immerse yourself in maritime history; explore the uninhabited islands and get up close to our wildlife. But more than anything, get out and enjoy Scilly's incredibly beautiful natural environment.
