The crossing from Penzance to St. Mary's takes around 2hrs and 45 minutes, and gives you a unique perspective of some of Cornwall's most iconic coastline. The Scillonian has been serving the Isles of Scilly for the past 40 years. Scillonian III is currently in service for passengers and cargo 8 months of the year, carrying up to 485 passengers for day trips or longer holidays to the Islands. As a preferred means of transport between Scilly and the mainland, she is a familiar sight in Penzance.
The Dry Dock offers a 365 day a year service with a dedicated docking berth for vessels, a drying-out berth and a range of workshops, including areas for fabrication, fitting, electrical work and carpentry.
Chris studied in the 1960s at Kingston School of Art and the Royal College of Art. Since retiring in 2010 as a TV and Film Production Designer (and helped design the Emperor Dalek, no less!) he paints full time.
His original paintings are acrylic on canvas inspired by Cornish landscapes and the special Cornish light, synonymous with this part of the world.
