Things to see and do on St. Agnes

Visit Britain’s smallest dairy

Troytown farm is the only dairy farm on the Isles of Scilly with just nine cows and one of the smallest in the country. At Troytown Farm Shop, you’ll find the islands’ own clotted cream, yoghurt and butter – but the farm’s most famous for its thick, indulgent ice cream, in over 30 flavours.

A pub with a view

The Turk’s Head is one of the Isles of Scilly’s most iconic pubs – and, overlooking Porth Conger, it’s arguably one of the most scenic in the UK and it’s also the most south westerly. It’s popular with islanders and visitors alike, with a varied lunch and dinner menu, and range of real ales.

Treasure at Beady Pool

400 years ago, a trading ship foundered on the treacherous rocks off St. Agnes, sending its cargo of Venetian glass and ceramic beads to the bottom of the sea. Ever since, the currents have carried these tiny treasures to a horseshoe-shaped cove – Beady Pool.

St. Agnes Watersports

Situated on the beach, in the quiet harbour of Pereglis is St. Agnes Watersports. The Watersports site has been developed from years of passion and experience; and it allows visitors to see enjoy the St. Agnes from the water, seeing the island from a different perspective.
