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
Friday We travel from Cornwall to the Preston area where we have an overnight stay at the Samlesbury Hotel.
Saturday After a leisurely breakfast we have a morning visit to Lancaster, one of Britain’s heritage cities which is as vibrant as it is quirky with a captivating past and a cultured present. There will be time to explore and have lunch before we travel the short distance to Heysham for the ferry to the Isle of Man.
Sunday 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.
Monday This morning we join the Isle of Man Steam Railway to travel from Douglas to Port Erin taking in the most scenic views of the southern part of this beautiful Isle. Later we journey by coach down to The Sound, a protected nature reserve with views across to the Calf of Man. We also visit Castletown, the ancient capital of Mann with its Viking castle towering over pretty fishing cottages and winding streets.
Tuesday Today we 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.
Wednesday 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.
