The Isles of Scilly are a unique group of islands situated 28 sea miles from Lands End, Cornwall. This tropical archipelago is a multitude of rocks and islands, five inhabited: St. Mary's, Tresco, St. Martin's, Bryher and St. Agnes. The largest is St Mary’s, with Hugh Town at the centre of this island’s life. Everything is really on your doorstep when you stay at No 2.

The Gulf Stream provides a sub-tropical habitat enhancing the already mild climate. Designated an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB), the islands are a haven of biodiversity with rare wildlife and plants, outstanding geology, archeology, history and marine life.

Whatever you are looking for in a holiday destination the Scilly Isles have something for everyone.

Regular boat services to all the islands are from the quay, a seven-minute walk away from No 2 Silver Street.
