One of my favourite placesin the world especially Tresco. Been there many times. The peace and tranquility is like a sacrement. Perfect.

It was a good time to go - few tourists, I think Id go back in May as again, its before main season.  The boat from St Mary's to Tresco was quite cheap and £12 a head to get into the abbey gardens.
Im glad I flew newquay to St Mary's - couldnt be bothered with the long journey the Scillonian takes......
