Isles of Scilly

MAP_Isles_of_Scilly.gifTrippy: a short visual trip to a place of architectural or design importance

Trippy to: the Isles of Scilly, including the most visited of the islands, Tresco

What's to see? Over a hundred rocky islands -- many uninhabited -- with Britain's best beaches, archaeological wonders like Cromwell's Castle, exotic palm trees, the acclaimed Tresco Abbey Gardens, and other subtropical wonders thanks to the warmth-giving Gulf Stream. Be sure to see Penzance and Land's End on the British mainland and use the former as home base while you go isle hopping.

Location: Cornwall, England, where the Atlantic Ocean meets the English Channel
