At this time of year on the Isles of Scilly, you’ll find something for foodies, walkers, wildlife enthusiasts and anyone seeking a little peace, the islands are quiet but still warm enough for days spent outdoors.

Whilst you’re there, book in a trip to see the wildlife- October is a brilliant time of year to see the visiting birds or a trip to the Bishop Rock lighthouse- the westernmost point of the Isles of Scilly. From here, you can visit the ruggedly beautiful island of St. Agnes and adjoining island of Gugh.

Another island to visit is Bryher, its small size means it’s perfect for doing little but walking a full lap of the island, whilst staring out at the Atlantic rollers.

You can’t visit the Isles of Scilly without a trip to Tresco island, it has all the wild Scilly beauty but a cosmopolitan lifestyle to go with it.

St Mary’s is the main island and a great place to hire bikes, cycling through tracks and nature trails, before collapsing in front of the fire in the evenings, at one of the hearty local pubs.

St Martin’s is the island to see the Narcissi. Whilst the rest of the Narcissi crop in the UK won’t bloom until spring, the Isles of Scilly’s unique location means they are a brilliant climate for growing flowers and they bloom much earlier.
