Travel Channel Featuring Scilly

A shot from The Travel Channel's feature

The Isles of Scilly are being featured all this month on The Travel Channel.

The specially produced, seven minute long video was shot during the summer last year and is presented by travel writer and TV personality, Julie Peasgood.

The video features stunning images of the islands, including a trip by boat and views of the beaches, together with a walk around Tresco Abbey Gardens with marketing manager, Alasdair Moore.

Karen Baker from Mercury PR in Penzance said the Travel Channel approached them last June to arrange the filming. The company were stopping in Scilly on July 14th during a ‘Cruise and Maritime’ shoot aboard the Marco Polo cruise ship, a regular visitor to our shores.

Sophie Hughes at the Tourist Information Centre then organised their itinerary and escorted them around St Mary’s and Tresco.

The piece will be aired during the Travel Channel’s daily Travel Today programme. It will also be archived on the website and included in the channel’s newsletter this month, received by over 50,000 people.
