“Gorgeous flowers!”

Tresco Abbey Garden & Valhalla Collection
Ranked #1 of 3 things to do in Tresco
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed February 2, 2013

There is no way to describe the diversity of the flowers at Tresco. It is breath-taking. Everywhere you turn around, there is another little flower that is peeking out of of the ground or a wall to surprise you. It is sight not to be missed.

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.

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.

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.

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..
