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.
