You don't have to go by helicopter to Scilly . You can take a plane

It's a tiny little aircraft and they weigh you plus your luggage and place passengers carefully so as to balance the plane.
I would not recommend going by sea unless it is very calm and you are a very good sailor

and it takes quite a long time. then if you wanted to go to Tresco [the best place on the Scillies for a day trip, IMHO] you'd have to get another boat, as the Scillionian only goes to the main island of St. Mary's. by the time you'd done all of that, it'd be time to come back!

as for the little planes, we flew in them to get to the Westerman Islands off Iceland. if you don't like helicopters, I'm not sure how you'd take to such a tiny plane!

Agree, expensive, but even brief time spent at Hotel Tresanton is memorable.

lunch there is very nice for a special occasion and at £35 for 3 courses is not wildly out of kilter with similar establishments:
