Higher Town, Isles of Scilly
Higher Town is the easternmost and largest settlement on the island of St Martin's in the Isles of Scilly, England. It is situated just inland, though the more modern of the island's two quays is located just south of the settlement and is named Higher Town Quay.

The settlement has two churches (and they are the only churches on the island) - the Church of England parish church of St Martin's, and also a Methodist chapel (one of two in the Isles of Scilly) which dates from about 1845. The island's fire and coastguard station is situated by the CofE parish church.
There is also a small settlement called Higher Town on the island of St Agnes. The island's pub (the Turk's Head) is situated between Higher Town and the island's quay at Porth Conger.
