Last year, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, William and Kate, visited this breathtaking area. Hello Magazine calls it "one of Britain's best kept secrets" and actress Minnie Driver is a frequent guest.

About the island
It's a 2 hour and 45 minutes ferry ride from Penzance Harbour to the Isles of Scilly but boy, is it worth it! An archipelago off the Cornish coast, in southwest England, the islands are covered in heathland, and fringed by sandy beaches. The ferry takes you to St. Mary's and from here you can explore the nearby islands of Tresco or St. Martin's; inter-island boats will happily take you there for a few hours.
Activities on the islands are wide-ranging and include sophisticated cafes, coastal walks, spas, bike trails, golf, local wine-tasting and the 19th century Abbey Garden. Or you could just soak up some sun (or rain!) on the sandy beaches or take a dip in the sea.
