Itinerary

Overview

The Isle of Man surprises visitors with its colourful heritage, miles of beaches, areas of natural beauty and sleepy villages where time has stood still. Its capital, Douglas, enjoys an enviable position on a crescent shaped bay and is home to grand architecture and a long esplanade where horse-drawn trams ply their trade. Perhaps visit the town’s Great Union Camera Obscura, a Victorian curiosity and a quirky way to take in the stunning views. Or uncover the history of the island at the Manx Museum, located behind Villa Marina Gardens. We head to Castletown where we include entry to Castle Rushen, a medieval fortification built for a Norse king and later besieged by Robert the Bruce. We also visit Cregneash, a living museum portraying life as a crofter and take in the coastal village of Port St Mary.

Your Excursions

Castletown & Castle Rushen
Once the island’s capital, ancient Castletown is clustered around splendidly preserved Castle Rushen. Perhaps learn the story of the town’s maritime past at the Nautical Museum which houses an eighteenth century yacht. We explore perfectly preserved Castle Rushen, once the home of Lords and Kings of Mann it later became firstly a mint, then a prison. Inside this impressive fortress you’ll see furnished chambers, hear stories about its former inhabitants and enjoy panoramic vistas of the market square and harbour from the ramparts.


Cregneash Folk Museum & Port St Mary
Experience bygone days at the picturesque village of Cregneash, the last stronghold where the Manx language was spoken and where life in a nineteenth century crofting settlement is depicted. Step inside the cottages to unearth the lives of the crofters through craft demonstrations. From here, we head to the endearing village of Port St Mary with sandy beach, Victorian
promenade and quaint fishing harbour.
