Scilly Could Benefit From Weekend Reviews
The Sunday Express has featured the islands in their ‘Culture Hotspots to Enjoy This Spring’ report.
They suggest a trip in April for the Walk Scilly event, taking place between the 9th and the 15th.
The newspaper says that the islands benefit from “a sub-tropical climate” and writer Katie Rowe recommends that readers, “explore sandy beaches, turquoise waters and lush tropical foliage on a range of guided walks that cover everything from wildlife spotting to food foraging.”
Stratford-upon-Avon, Cornwall and North Yorkshire also make the list.
The authors of Travel Blog website ‘Hand Luggage Only’ have also recommended a trip to Scilly amongst their twenty essential places to include on a British road trip.
The writers visited Tresco last year and have rated Scilly highly, along with Rye, Brighton, London, Bath and Stonehenge, although they accept that you can’t actually drive over, so visiting the islands isn’t really a ‘road trip!’
Writers Yaya and Lloyd recommend that their readers should, “spend a day or two exploring one of the most unique set of islands in the UK.”
“Bathed in its own micro-climate, the Scilly Isles are a true little paradise!” they add.
