Silversea Luxury Cruises A ST MARY'S (Isles of Scilly)

ST MARY'S (Isles of Scilly)

Scattered 30 miles offshore from England’s most south-westerly point – Land’s End – the Isles of Scilly are home to rich wildlife, and green land sloping to powdery white beaches. The Isles of Scilly’s biggest island harbours around 1,600 people – roughly three-quarters of the total population - and is one of five occupied islands. Isolated and serene, life here hums along at its own pace in this archipelago's bubble, which enjoys the UK’s mildest climate, and some of its most spectacular beaches. View more

Hugh Town is the centre of St Mary’s, and you’ll be warmly welcomed by the incredibly tight-knit local community. A peaceful place, watch out when the waters are suddenly parted by the competition of gig racing – the island’s sporting pride and joy - which sees teams competing in colourful rowboats. Elsewhere, catch sight of Atlantic seals and seabirds like puffins and fulmars, along nine miles of coastline. You can also spot the ghostly shipwrecks strewn around the island’s waters, and the 140 islands and skerries that have made treacherous sailing historically. There's a dense collection of historical sites that belies the islands’ small size – from a former prime minster’s grave to star-shaped fortresses. Tresco Abbey Garden is one of the UK’s most vibrant gardens, with diverse plants bathing in the warmer climate and over 300 species on display. Taste the rewards of the mild weather with a glass of wine from England’s most south-westerly vineyard.

The St. Martin's vineyard was established in 1996 by Val & Graham Thomas - originally as a holiday hobby. The St. Martin's Vineyard and Winery is sited on the south facing slopes of a tenancy farm originally used to produce bulbs and cut flowers by Derek Perkins, Val's father. The first of the vines trialed were white varieties - Reichensteiner and Madeleine Angevine. Now, they produce five varieties, three white, one rose, and one red.

St Mary' Garrison Walk

The Isles of Scilly are an archipelago of five inhabited islands and other small rocky islets situated 28 miles from Lands End, the most South Westerly point of the British Isles. With a total population of just over two thousand, an exceptionally mild climate, beautiful flowers and countless white sandy beaches, they are also known for their friendliness, birds, clear turquoise sea and ancient sites and monuments. The Isles of Scilly are a beautiful haven of peace and tranquility loved by visitors and locals alike.

Be met by your local guide at St Mary's quay and enjoy a short introductory talk about the history of the Isles. Traces of human life on Scilly stretch back at least 8,000 years, when the islands were one large land-mass that was home to nomadic hunter-gatherers. Their flint tools still sometimes turn up today, on beaches and in fields.

Star Castle Garrison

Venture off by foot to enjoy a scenic tour of the Garrison on the isle of St Mary's and look across to Bryher and Tresco, marveling that even though you can walk between them, they are so utterly different. Marvel at the beautiful views before ending up in Star Castle to enjoy a tea or coffee in the 16th Century Castle Dungeon Bar. Star Castle is now a hotel, but it was built as an impregnable fortress back in 1593 and gets its name from the shape of its eight-sided central keep, curtain wall and dry moat. Just to the right of the castle you'll see a campsite and just right of this a footpath branches right and takes you down to Steval Point Battery, which marks the island's most westerly point. On a clear day there are fabulous views over to St Agnes and distant, lonely Bishop's Rock Light house.


Hugh Town

There will be an opportunity to explore Hugh Town at leisure, which is the main and largest settlement on the Island, before returning to the ship. Hugh Town is the central hub with its cluster of shops, banks, churches, post office, cafés, galleries, restaurants and pubs as well as the wonderful museum. It has three lovely beaches in very close proximity - Porthcressa with a children's play area close by; Town Beach, a perfect spot to watch the comings and goings on the Quay; and Porthmellon which also hosts the Sailing Centre.

Stay in Hugh Town for more sightseeing and shopping and return to the Quay at your leisure or walk back with your guide after refreshments at Star Castle.


Please note: This tour involves an extensive amount of walking for approximately 1, 24 mile (about 2 kilometres), at times over gravel surfaces and inclines. Guests are advised to wear warm, comfortable sportswear in layers with sturdy, flat, and closed-toe walking or hiking shoes, and bring sun protection and a weatherproof jacket from the ship. This tour is not suitable for guests with limited mobility and guests who utilise a wheelchair.

Tresco Abbey Gardens

Tender ashore to the island of Tresco and be met by your local guide before 30 minutes walking for to Tresco gardens for a guided tour. Tresco is best known for its Abbey Gardens, laid out by the remarkable Augustus Smith - a wealthy merchant banker who purchased the islands from the Duchy of Cornwall in the mid-1830s. Work on the gardens commenced in 1834 on the site of the old Benedictine Abbey.


By building tall wind-breaks, Augustus Smith (a botanist and plant collector) channeled the weather up and over the network of walled enclosures he built around the Priory ruins, and the three terraces he carved from the rocky, south facing slope looking towards St Mary's. In this way he maximized the generous climate that Tresco enjoys thanks to the prevailing effects of the Gulf Stream. The climate is mild, with sunshine hours generally greater than the UK average, rainfall less, and winter frost and snow unexpected.


Tresco Abbey Garden

Tresco is thought of as a perennial Kew without the glass - shrugging off salt spray and Atlantic gales to host 20,000 exotic plants. Many of those plants would stand no chance on the Cornish mainland, less than 30 miles away. Yet even at the winter equinox more than 300 plants will be in flower. All in all, the garden is home to glorious species from 80 countries, ranging from Brazil to New Zealand and Burma to South Africa. Subsequent generations have continued the development of the Garden, which is today a major attraction of the islands.


Please note: This tour involves an extensive amount of walking for approximately 1, 86 miles (about 3 kilometres), at times over gravel surfaces and inclines. Guests are advised to wear warm, comfortable sportswear in layers with sturdy, flat, and closed-toe walking or hiking shoes, and bring sun protection and a weatherproof jacket from the ship.
