St Mary’s is a world in its own; Hugh Town, the centre of the island, is a haven of shops, cafes, restaurants and pubs – offering a myriad of drink to sample, authentic clothing to try and an abundance of foods to taste. The town centre is the busiest part of the island, and possibly the busiest region in the entirety of the Scilly Isles; the collection of visitors and tourists enjoying a beer or a glass of wine is the closest the archipelago comes to resembling life on the mainland.
For a relatively small island, there is plenty to do, especially in the summer when the weather lends itself to a leisurely stroll along the alluring walking trails. Whether you prefer to traverse on two wheels or on two feet, the rugged landscape is perfect for adventuring around to discover the perfect place for enviable photos. Away from the natural beauty, the architecture of the Old Town is a fascinating insight into the infrastructural history of the island.
St Mary’s is the largest island belonging to the Isles of Scilly, an archipelago laying off the southwest coast of England. The port is oftentimes used as the gateway to the mainland, with crossings to Penzance on the southwest coast of the UK.
