Holiday Tour Details
Isle of Man Description
The Isle of Man is shrouded by mystery and has a captivating story to tell. This beautiful island has breathtaking scenery, unspoilt beaches and a relaxed pace of life. Wherever you are, you are never far from the attractive coast and we base our tour in Douglas, the delightful hub of the island with a sweeping Victorian promenade.
Isle of Man Itinerary
Thursday We travel from Cornwall to the Preston area where we have an overnight stop at the four star Hallmark Hotel Preston Leyland.
Friday After a leisurely breakfast we have a morning visit to the town of Morecambe. The seaside town has an attractive promenade with fine views across the bay. There will be time to follow the heritage trail and have lunch before we travel the short distance to Heysham for the ferry to the Isle of Man.
Saturday This morning we join the Isle of Man Steam Railway. Our journey takes us from Douglas to Port Erin taking in the most scenic views of the southern part of this beautiful Isle. At Port Erin we have a visit to the railway museum. In the afternoon we visit Cregneash Folk Park, a restored 19th century crofting village where we learn that villagers of the past lived a varied life.
Sunday Today we explore more of this beautiful island. Our day will include a visit to the west coast resort of Peel where attractions include a haunted castle, smoked kipper factory and House of Manannan Museum. We also visit the historic Great Laxey Wheel and Mines Trail where we see the largest working waterwheel in the world.
Monday Our last day will be free to relax and enjoy Douglas. The town is the capital of this lovely island and is a unique blend of holiday resort and working harbour. Perhaps use the traditional public transport to explore independently.
Tuesday Sadly it’s time to say goodbye to the Empress Hotel and board our ferry for the mainland. We arrive back in Cornwall later in the evening.
