Isle Of Man Explorer 7 Days - Hydro Hotel
The Isle of Man’s scenery combines a beautiful coastline of sandy beaches and rocky points with a mountainous interior which is never more than a few minutes' drive away. The architecture in Douglas is predominantly Victorian but in the villages and towns elsewhere on the island there is a rich cultural heritage of harbours and castles, with many traces of ancient Viking and Celtic history. Douglas has many shops and entertainments including two modern shopping malls, a theatre, nightclubs, discos, cinemas, ten pin bowling and a casino. But it is above all the relaxed pace of life, the warm friendly welcome and the reminders of a less hectic age which most visitors recall as they look back on their stay on this wonderful island.

We head to Ramsey, which always makes a dramatic impression and is built around a large harbour on the estuary of the Sulby River. We also call at Peel – the largest town on the west coast and home to some of the island’s finest beaches. Golden sands give way to sheer cliffs and Peel Castle is undoubtedly the town’s main highlight. /n
