Great British breaks

Explore Hindu temples, quaff the best bubbly and come face to face with eight-metre giants of the sea: there’s no need to leave British soil to get a taste of the exotic

10 GO ISLAND-HOPPING

Those dreaming of gliding through crystal seas between balmy isles needn’t journey to Greece to fulfil their fantasies. A collection of 140 islets some 60 miles off the Cornish coast, the Isles of Scilly are made for mini odysseys by boat. Hire a day boat from the Sailing Centre on the main island of St Mary’s or book onto one of the courses and cruise between harbours bobbing with colourful fishing vessels and uninhabited archipelagos, where palms, agapanthus and other exotics flourish in a climate that’s the warmest in the whole of Britain (boat rental from £20, accompanied from £40; sailingscilly.com).
