How does your Tier affect your UK retreat?

The restrictions may change frequently but Skyros - the leading provider of learning holidays - continues to ensure social distancing, limit numbers and offer refreshing breaks in a beautiful, natural environment by the sea with outstanding facilitators.

Skyros also offer free events online in its Friends of Skyros group.

The Isle of Wight is designated as Tier One. If you're travelling for your UK retreat from an area Tier Two (which now includes London), Skyros continues with its current social distancing measures. Read the 
Safe Stays policy and take a look at recent guest reviews here.

Join Skyros for a short break, learn something new, meet likeminded people and enjoy delicious meals tailored to dietary requirements.
