  • Note that you can fly to the Isles of Scilly with Skybus. Skybus flies from Land's End and Newquay Cornwall Airport. The flight from Land's End takes about 15mins. From Newquay, it takes about 30mins. You can also fly from Exeter
  • If this type of day trip appeals to you, we'd recommend booking a space on MS Oldenburg which runs between Bideford in North Devon and Lundy Island out at sea. It's a long day but well worth the effort
