Isles of Scilly

An archipelago off the south-western tip of Cornwall, the Isles of Scilly are actually part of the Duchy of Cornwall.

Almost 30 miles off the coast at Land's End, these islands were first inhabited during the Stone Age. Fishing and farming have been the primary source of income until recent times when tourism has become the foremost industry.

Channel Islands

Although they are just a few miles off the French coast and are not part of the United Kingdom, the Channel Islands are really rather British. The main islands of Jersey, Guernsey, Alderney, Sark and Herm are accompanied by the smaller Jethou, Brecqhou and Lihou - plus a number of uninhabited islets - to create an archipelago within sight of the coast of Normandy. They`ve long been a holiday favourite for both the people of the UK and the rest of Europe because they offer a wonderful combination of warm climate, spectacular scenery, tip-top facilities and historical interest, too.
