Amazing sights on your journey

Your first glimpse of the islands

Very quickly after take off, the Isles of Scilly come into view. Before you know it, you’re looking down at quiet, sandy coves and clear, turquoise seas in between.

Land in paradise

Arrival into the Isles of Scilly is the perfect introduction to Scilly, with birds eye views of this sub-tropical paradise.

Rugged Land's End

Cornwall’s furthest tip is suitably dramatic. As you head out over the Atlantic, you’ll see the cliffs, rocks and waves in an entirely new way.

Longships Lighthouse

There’s been a lighthouse protecting shipping from the treacherous Land’s End coast since 1795. The current tower is almost 150 years old, and can be seen 11 miles away.

The Helicopter experience

Travel in style on the brand new AW169 10-seater helicopter.
