Visiting the Scilly Islands

Jump to last reply

Hello All, Two years ago while you all helped my plan my trip to the Channel Islands there were several people who mentioned the Scilly Islands as an alternative. Now it seems this year I may be able to check that off my bucket list. I am going to be in the Cornwall area Apr 14 to 21 on an organized tour and would like to tack the Scilly Islands on at the end. I can allow 4 to 5 extra days for this but am having trouble sorting logistics and would like a head start on my research.

I will be starting from the Bath area, travelling to Scilly and then back to Heathrow for flight home. It looks like the travel will be a bit complicated. Was looking at train schedules but takes 2 switches (3 trains) from Bath to Penzance and the same from Penzance to Heathrow. Seems like a large room for error and missed connections if there are delays.

I know there are some direct flights from Exeter to Scilly. Perhaps I can train Bath to Exeter and then fly to Scilly. Money will be an issue since I will have blown a lot of budget on organized tour. The Great Western Railway has no information on their schedule for 2016 so planning a little tricky.

Thanks for any input. Once I figure out the travel thing I will start planning my time on Scilly.
