Isle of Man Description
The Isle of Man is a fascinating holiday destination where rugged coastal cliffs meet wide flat plains and sandy beaches. This beautiful island has breathtaking scenery, unspoilt beaches and a relaxed pace of life. The delightful hub of Douglas is our base with its sweeping Victorian promenade.
Isle of Man Itinerary
Tuesday We travel from Cornwall to the Preston area where we have an overnight stop at the four star Preston Leyland Hotel by Best Western.
Wednesday 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.
Thursday Our 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.
Friday 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.
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 and from here we journey by coach down to The Sound, a protected nature reserve with seabird, seal colonies and views across to the Calf of Man. 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 Sadly it’s time to say goodbye to the Empress Hotel and board our ferry to the mainland. We arrive back in Cornwall later in the evening.
