Where is Tresco?

Tresco is the second largest of the Isles of Scilly, found just 28 miles off the southwest peninsula of England. As the islands are very small and surrounded by sea they have a climate much milder than the mainland with frosts rarely experienced. They are unlike anywhere else in the UK.

How do I get to Tresco?

You have 3 travel options:

  1. Helicopter direct

  2. Probably the quickest way to get to Tresco is to fly direct on a helicopter from Penzance. Penzance heliport is close to the mainline railway station and First Great Western often do inclusive deals to the islands. British International Helicopters fly several times per day (Mon-Sat).
  3. Plane then boat

  4. Skybus operate a number of routes from the southwest of England to the nearby island of St Mary's. You can fly from Bristol, Exeter, Newquay or Land's End. Air Southwest offer direct flights to Newquay from London Gatwick and London City airports. When you arrive at St.Mary's you will then need to catch a boat across to Tresco (about 30 minutes journey).
  5. Ferry then ferry

  6. The cheapest option is to catch the Scillonian (ferry) from Penzance on the 2h40m journey to the nearby island of St.Mary's. Once at St.Mary's you can transfer to a smaller boat that'll take you across to Tresco.
