Lucky Prince Charles, as he left England for exile in Jersey and France, followed by wandering all over the place, this is where he stayed. I hope he remembered fondly his stay in the Isles of Scilly. Scroll down for a picture of the two castles there ... one was built by Cromwell after Charles had left.…

Otherwise, the isles were most often used by the fleet which stayed here for six weeks of quarantine if they had been to an infected place.
