Every year, the Isles of Scilly host two walking festivals: the main Walk Scilly week-long event in spring, and a shorter Walk Scilly Weekend in October. This year, Walk Scilly week takes place 9th – 15th April; the programme covering the length and breadth of the islands. There really is something for everyone…
Enjoy the spring sunshine
Walk Scilly week takes place from 9th – 15th April, and it’s a perfect time to come and discover another side of Scilly in the beautiful spring sunshine. There’s no better way to explore the islands than on foot and this year, the 10th Walk Scilly festival promises once again to be really fantastic…. 27 expertly-guided walks across all the inhabited islands and a couple of the uninhabited islands too.
Whether you’re a seasoned Scilly-lover or a first-time visitor, there’s something to suit every ability and interest. Easy half-day strolls to longer island-wide stomps; from foraging feasts, wildlife discoveries and historical walks, to an in depth browse around Tresco Abbey Garden with one of the Abbey gardeners, island “top to toes” and sunrise and star-gazing walks – you name it, you’ll find it!
This year, there’s also an evening programme – from slide shows and presentations, to musical evenings, and opening party and evening gourmet dinners.
