SEE THE STUNNING ISLES OF SCILLY with Will Wagstaff
Step back in time on the unspoilt islands and discover incredible wildlife and scenery with the nature expert
The Isles of Scilly are a short ferry ride from the Cornish coast, yet they feel a million miles away. Five of the islands are inhabited by 2,200 people, most of whom live on St Mary’s, where you’ll be based on this tour. Thanks to the island’s unique geography, there’s an array of flora and fauna to see. You’ll visit in spring or autumn (great times for wildlife spotting) and be joined by Will Wagstaff, who’s been guiding tours here for over 25 years. Don’t miss this chance to experience the magic at one of the best times of the year to go!
MEET WILL WAGSTAFF
Nature expert Will Wagstaff will be your expert guide on the Isles of Scilly, the place he calls home. As well as knowing all there is to know about the wildlife, Will can also educate you about aspects of island life.
Many of the species on the Isles of Scilly can’t be seen anywhere else in the UK. They have more than 450 species of seabirds, waders and migrants.
You’ll visit Tresco’s Abbey Garden, which is described as ‘a perennial Kew without the glass’ and is home to more than 20,000 plants. You’ll also enjoy boat tours and guided walks with Will.
