Christmas on Tresco
Time to be together. For cheery carols in Tresco’s tiny church. For Christmas morning magic in your cottage home-from-home. For beachy Boxing Day walks followed by festive feasts at The New Inn. For an unforgettable island Christmas...
What's Open over Christmas & New Year
Tresco Island Spa
Our indoor pool, Jacuzzi, sauna, steam room and gym are open daily (closed Christmas Day, Boxing Day & New Year's Day), with ila therapies bookable at select times. The Sea Garden spa facilities will also be open.
The New Inn
Open daily throughout the festive season for drinks, lunch and dinner, pre-lunch drinks on Christmas Day, followed by our Christmas Lunch (pre-booking essential).
Open throughout the period for daily essentials, treats and festive favourites (closed on Christmas Day, Boxing Day and New Year's Day).
It's a far-from-bleak midwinter on Tresco; the garden is open daily, ablaze with colour, with hundreds of plants in bloom even at the New Year Flower Count.
Except for transfers, there will be minimal boat trips over the festive period - it's usually just one or two a week to St Mary's, with no trips to other islands.
Events & Activities
From candlelit carols to Makers Markets; serene seasonal yoga to New Year's Eve celebrations, we'll have a small but perfectly formed calendar of events.
Lucy-Tania Boutique and Gallery Tresco will open selected days for last-minute gifting and the dropping of subtle hints to loved ones.
The Ruin Beach Café, Flying Boat Café and Garden Café will be closed throughout the festive period.
