“Breathtaking Tresco Gardens”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 12, 2013

We visited the Island in January it was beautiful. The work that has gone into these gardends is immense and shows if you go take comfortable shoes and a bottle of water there are some good slopes to get up but the views are wonderful.
Check the price of boat trip before you leave Bryher boats tend to be over expensive compared to other boat ferry.
The tourst information office can help you get a good deal and look at notice boards.

“Tresco”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 9, 2012

Lots of succulent plants, magical vistas across the water and lots of bird life - The display of ship figureheads is an added if strange extra.

“Abbey Gardens Tresco”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 6, 2012

One of the most amazing gardens anywhere. Has its own micro climate therefore able to grow tropical and sub tropical plants. Abbey ruins, ponds & fountains with sculptures, golden pheasants wander around.
Restaurant very good, garden full of tame wild birds sparrows, thrushes etc, who will eat out of your hand!
Shop very good. Valhalla display of ships figureheads very interesting.

“Nice Windy Walk”

If you have an hour or two to while away, its well worth the wonder. and if you time it right, you'll get to see the Island helicopter picking up and dropping off..

“Gorgeous garden with magnificent collection of trees”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 12, 2012

This is a great place to go when you can spare the time from island hopping!

The cafe however was overpriced and the food not very imaginative. That was the only thing that let it down a little.
