This horticultural paradise is home to a spectacular collection of over 20,000 exotic plants from all over the world - many of which cannot be grown anywhere other than Great Britain. The Valhalla collection in the garden is also impressive with its colorful display of figureheads recovered from the island shipwrecks.

You can rent bikes to get around, or if you're feeling active, you can rent a windsurf board or kayak from Tresco Sailing Club.

6th day: Stopover on the island of Ste Agnès
In addition to this, you will need to know more about it.
On the most southwestern edge of the Isles of Scilly, St. Agnes is totally unspoiled and surprisingly peaceful. It is just a mile or so, and its closest neighbor is Gugh, to which it is joined by a sand bar at low tide.
It is an island of marvelous contrasts, from rocky outcrops on its western side exposed to paradisiacal beaches in its more sheltered coves; The tranquility of the sand bar between Saint Agnes and Gugh is particularly magical. The lands are quaint cottages and a patchwork of flower fields, while a lighthouse sits at the highest point on the island. St. Agnes is also a thriving community of professional farms and a creative, light industrial flair. Sainte-Agnès urges your senses to seek adventure. Descend in search of the circular maze of rounded beach stones; Marvel at the rock piles and cairins that point Wingletang Down, or paint the beaches for the wrecked treasures of Beady Pool. Periglis beach is a great place for a picnic as well as a seashell collecting paradise. It also offers stunning views of the bird sanctuary which is Annet, the Western Rocks and Bishop Rock. And then there is the Old Man of Gugh, who is 10 feet tall and is believed to be associated with the rituals of the Bronze Age.
