Geography

Comprised of over 140 rocky islets the Isles of Scilly lie 28 miles from Land's End off the coast of Cornwall. The largest island, St Mary's, covers an area of only 2.5 square miles. Of the other islands, known as the "Off Islands", Tresco, St Martins, Bryher and St Agnes are the only inhabited ones.

Travelling times

The ferry from Penzance takes 2 hours and 40 minutes whilst flights operate from Exeter, Newquay and Lands End taking from just 15 minutes. There are no flight or ferry services on Sundays.

Transfer times

On St Mary's, as you'd expect, a matter of minutes. If you are continuing on to the Off Islands, then you'll need to take one of the local boats, which you pay for locally, and which operate regularly between the islands.

Passports

You don't need a passport to travel to the Isles of Scilly, but you are required to produce photographic ID at check in.
