Holiday Summary

  • Travel Type: Coach

Measuring 33 miles long and 13 miles wide, the Isle of Man is home to the famous TT motorcycle race which bends and twists its way around the island. It also offers a unique combination of seaside holiday resorts, spectacular mountain scenery and a wealth of historic interest. It lies in the Irish Sea, less than 60 miles west of the Lancashire coastline. The island is a unique self governing kingdom - a Crown dependency that belongs to neither the UK nor the European Union with its own parliament, the Tynwald.

Plan My Trip

Day 1
We depart early morning travelling to Heysham where we board the Isle of Man Steam Packet ferry for the sea crossing to Douglas followed by a short drive to the hotel arriving in time for our evening meal.

Day 2
After a leisurely breakfast we board the Isle of Man Steam Railway for a single leg journey to Port Erin, the line stretches for just under16 miles, with a highest point of 588 feet above sea level. We rejoin the coach and return to Douglas via Cregneash village where tiny whitewashed cottages under thatched roofs await your inspection. Remainder of the afternoon at leisure in Douglas. Note high steps to access the train and tram.

Day 3
Today we have included an Isle of Man Explorer Pass which includes a horse drawn tram, vintage railway and Island bus service. Your explorer ticket departs Douglas travelling to Laxey, then departs Laxey for the Summit. Finally back to Ramsey for the return journey to Douglas.

Day 4
Today we have a coach excursion following the TT course to Tynwald Hill, home of the Manx parliament, the oldest parliament in the world, established by the Vikings, 1000 years ago. We continue to Peel where mystery and suspense prevail as you learn the secrets of Peel Castle, which sits ceremoniously at the entrance to the harbour.

Day 5
We take the morning sailing from Douglas to Heysham and complete the journey home.
